i want to make stitch markers and earrings. im facinated with all the pretty beads, but when i was at joann's today i felt unsure about which of the pliers or other tools to buy along with beading wire etc. is someone aware of a good beading primer?

thanks :muah:

Not sure if this is what you had in mind, but I found it helpful (although my quest for charms to use in the house turned no results)...
