What is a bead board?

Bead Board

If you are a beginner, all of the beading accessories out there can be intimidating. Bead boards are a great tool for the beginning jewelry maker and it is definitely something you will need to plan out your bead necklaces and bead bracelets. A bead board is used for quick and easy jewelry beading. A full size bead board has three channels for designing necklaces up to 46" and three straight channels for making bracelets and anklets up to 9". A large bead board has 10 storage bins for organizing beading supplies such as beads, findings and stringing materials. A small bead board comes with three channels for designing necklaces up to 34" and has six storage bins for beading supplies. Don't worry about starting small and building up your bead supply.
