Does anyone have any good Jewerly Making sites where you can get Free Patterns. Also looking for sites with good prices for beading supplies, more for the finishing supplies not the beads themselves.

Whn you say finishing supplies do you mean clasps and stuff like that? If so I buy mine at Hobby Lobby when they have a 50% of sale.
As for patterns they are everywhere. What type of things were you wanting to make? I do mostly bead critters but many of those sites have links for other types of beading.

I use the above sites for free patterns - I like making complicated things with small beads :re:

I buy quite a lot of "findings" and beads off Ebay.

The above sites are real good sites but I also like the about site. Try this -

It has great tutorials and patterns and links to other beading sites.

I've decided to live forever - so far, so good.
