I made it myself! 

I know these look more like a child had made them, but I'm so proud I finally could do something like these. For years I've been collecting different kinds of bead all over the world, but not yet succeeded to make anything out of them since now. Have to admit I needed to take some classes to learn how to make them step by step. "Intro to beading" was absolutely useful for me!

It's not just the beads you need, a variety of different tools is essential.
 Pliers for wire looping. Round nose & flat nose pliers.
 Pliers for crimping and cutters for wire cutting.

 Beading board is a great help.
 Findings: caps, cones, crimps, clasps, crimp tubes, cord ends... the list is endless.

 Glass beads.
 Time to start beading...

Design-wise far from perfect. But the idea was to learn the technique and after that I can concentrate the designs.
So beware, probably everyone I know will get one self-made piece of jewelry for present for xmas, birthday...
