Learning to make your own beautiful beaded necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings is fun and easy with Annie's Learn to Bead & Make Jewelry 101. Beading and jewelry making is a great craft for anyone of any age because it's an easy and inexpensive hobby to get into. All you need are a few basic tools, beading wire and a handful of pretty beads, and you're all set to create your own handmade jewelry. And who doesn't love a handcrafted piece of jewelry to wear or share?

In this online beading and jewelry-making class, designer and instructor Keri Lee Sereika starts by explaining the most common beading supplies and tools, taking the mystery out of the packed beading aisle at large craft stores.
