Product Description

There are few crafts that can match the appeal of beading both for it s simplicity and the beauty of the finished product. Beginners can easily master the basic skills necessary for achieving professional and eye-dazzling results. In this program Sharyn Pak demonstrates eight easy and creative projects that any beginner will enjoy. Projects include how to make: *Necklaces *Bracelets *Earrings *Wineglass Charms *Eyeglass Leashes *Bibbers *Zipper Doodles *Ankle Bracelets In addition, this DVD features a description of tools and materials and basic beading skills.


For 4th Grade and Up: Beading is a simple and easily accessible craft. In this how-to film, instructor Sharyn Pak presents all the basics needed to create lovely, professional-looking jewelry and gifts. She displays commonly used materials and tools, and then demonstrates the stringing techniques to make necklaces, wrist and ankle bracelets, and earrings. She takes it a step further by using specialty findings to make eyeglass chains, wine glass charms, zipper pulls, and clip-ended bibbers for one s favorite dentist or lobster lover. The demonstrations are clear and easy to follow, and the instructor explains how to use these techniques with even younger children. In discussing materials, she shows which tools are optional, so the casual beader doesn t need to purchase all the equipment shown. All materials and tools are inexpensive and readily available at any craft or discount store. The eight projects can be viewed independently of each other, and the DVD contains a PDF file of a helpful materials list which can be accessed from a computer s DVD drive. Although only a few examples of finished projects are displayed, it s enough to encourage creativity and foster success for artists of all ages. This instructional video for beginners will be useful in art classes or after-school programs. --School Library Journal 11/15/2007

(Rated: Recommended 3 out of 4 stars) Dating from prehistoric times, beads will never go out of vogue. Fun to work with, beads are available in a variety of styles suitable to most tastes and budgets. Featuring clear directions and good close-ups (essential for demonstrating projects with tiny objects like beads), Beading: 8 Easy Projects is hosted by instructor Sharyn Pak, who describes the tools needed for stringing beads and shares tips for making all of the projects shown here, which include necklaces (both single-strand and multi-strand types), bracelets, zipper doodles (a decorative fob that makes it easier to grab and pull a zipper closed), bibbers (a beaded strand with clips at both ends, either for a dentist s bib or for lobster bibs), ankle bracelets, wine glass charms, earrings, and eyeglass leashes. A PDF materials/tools list, but an on screen text version should have been included for those who do not have home computers. Recommended. --Video Librarian

Beading is an easily learned, fun craft for viewers from kids through seniors. Host Sharyn Pak Withers clearly explains and demonstrates eight simple beaded projects: necklaces, bracelets, eyeglass leashes, earrings, zipper pulls, wine glass charms, ankle bracelets, and beaded strings for bibs. The program lists the necessary supplies and tools before Withers demonstrates basic stringing and finishing techniques. Close-up camera shots give crafters a good view of the somewhat tricky technique of stringing clasps and completing projects. Throughout the program, Withers scatters helpful tips, such as keeping the back of the necklace simple so it lays flat and stringing heavier beads next to the bracelet clasp for balance. The personable instructor shows off various finished projects to give crafters additional ideas and inspiration. The DVD menu is user friendly, allowing easy access to projects. --Booklist 12/15/2007

5.0 out of 5 stars Beading made easy, November 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Years ago I made bead necklaces on string: not very elegant or durable. Here is the answer to my wish: a modestly priced instructional DVD, made by a woman who knows how to keep it simple but effective. I intend to look at the other titles from the On Air studio.

After reading several books on beading and jewelry making, I found this DVD to be an interesting recap of what I've learned, but not in a good way. The author (who is she? There's no information at all about her on the DVD) gives some good tips for beading, but her techniques and projects seem somewhat amateurish. The rather sloppy crimps she makes, the beads that sometimes look a bit too tightly strung, and her use of some cheap materials (florists wire?) seem to bode poorly for the longevity of her projects.

May be useful to those who don't want to take their jewelry making beyond the level of "arts and crafts," but not recommended for those who are looking to make quality items.
