Whats a good name for a company that makes one-off bead jewelry for Fair-Trade ?

So, we have a company that makes beaded jewelry ( necklaces, bracelets & anklets ) all proceeds go towards educating children in India ! Not exactly fair-trade, but more or less. Any ideas of a name that combines this social part ?

Revolution or Revolutions

I hope these look good and apt.. Think !!!!!

what do I need to start beading jewelry ?

I want to start beading my own jewelry, but I don’t know how to get started or what I need.

Get a few books on jewelry beading. I also make my own jewelry and you’ll need to get a plier set specifically for jewelry. It will have needle-nose and flat-head pliers, as well as a bead crimper and wire cutter. You can find it in the craft aisle. Also, you’ll need crimp beads, tiger tail jewelry wire, and a basic bead set with glass beads or spacer beads, as well as clasps. Some good places to look would be Walmart and Hobby Lobby if they have any near you. These are very good places to find great craft supplies that are inexpensive. That’s pretty much all there is to it. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions.

How To Read Even Count Tubular Peyote Patterns Bead A BIC Lighter by Beth Murr

My Website

Several people have emailed me with questions about how to read an even count tubular peyote pattern. I really appreciate your questions and feedback. It inspires me to make more videos. I hope this one helps you to have a better understanding of how the rows in even count tubular peyote stitch are counted on a diagonal line. Therefore each time you start a new row you will shift over one bead to the left. You can purchase this pattern and more on my website.
