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 is a daily newsletter, but the website has a wealth of great beading stuff. Videos, free projects and forums.
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.
Interview of Maria by Mona Hair .
