ABC's of Creativity - I is Internet

Internet is defined as a vast computer network linking smaller computer networks worldwide (usually preceded by the ). The Internet includes commercial, educational, governmental, and other networks, all of which use the same set of communications protocols.(

For many of us the Internet is a distraction but it is also as source of information and inspiration.

Here are some of my favourites -

Beading Daily

Beading Daily is a daily newsletter, but the website has a wealth of great beading stuff. Videos, free projects and forums.


Pinterest is sharing community. Follow your fellow bead artists, favorite bead designers and friends. You can also browse other pins by topic and repin your favourite. Follow Maria and myself.


YouTube is great for those who are visual learners. You can search for specific topic or techniques. You can also follow channels created by designers and producers. The School of Beadwork featuring Melanie Potter is a great channel. Create Your Style with Swarovski Elements has just started a new feature The Professor of Crystals.

Here is Maria's video demo of Diagonal Weave.
