I am constantly amazed by what you can find on the internet. There is an incredible wealth of free information (including detailed instructions) out there if you just know where to look. There are amazing YouTube videos demonstrating just about everything. Many of the major online bead merchants have great resources. Check out these links (in no particular order):
Bead&Button (click the references tab)
Beadwrangler (tons of links)
Sara Spoltore (recommended by my friend Marti Wakshlag)
There's so more more information out there. I am always finding new things.
Please share your favorite links.
