Quick Beading Tip: Use Soft Flex Bead Stoppers To Prevent Beads from Slipping1:00 PM
I love beading, however there was a time when it caused me a great deal of frustration. That time in my beading history is considered "before bead stoppers". During that time I lovingly referred to myself as the "angry beader". Ha! I dropped more beads then I care to admit. Sadly, it would happen when I was just about done with a design and I would hold it up to my neck to check the length when the wire would slip from my fingers and the beads would come crashing down to the floor. I used to use tape and that was ok, but it left a sticky residue and wasn't exactly fool proof. When I first tried a bead stopper my beading story was forever changed! Frustration due to slipping beads is a thing of past and I am so thankful for this tiny yet powerful bead stringing tool!
