Beadwork Kits
I teach at a number of national bead shows.  Sometimes I have kits left over from the classes I teach at these shows.  This is your opportunity to "take" a class at a major bead show without all the associated expenses of travel, accommodations, class registration, etc.
All kits include beads, findings, and other necessary materials, plus there's a full-color instruction sheet. Needle/thread are only included where noted, as many folks have personal preferences for these.

(By the way, when you buy a bead kit, whether mine or someone else's, you're not just paying for the beading materials.  You're also paying for the "creative genius" that inspired the design, the time to write and illustrate the directions, the time to gather materials and put the kit together, and packaging including ink and paper.  My kits are kis-ed (keep it simple).  I don't spend a bunch of money on fancy packaging--that keeps costs down.  Plus the kits are easier to mail.)
