The Bead Findings Cheat List with Photos

When I was a new beader, I didn’t know what everything was called and when I had to go and buy something and explain to the sales lady what I was looking for, then it would usually come out as, “Do you perhaps have this thingy?” and if I didn’t have an example, then I would have to give a looong explanation as to what it does. Have you been there? Well, then this list is for you. I hope it helps.

This list is quite extensive and photo-heavy so please be patient if it takes a while to load. I tried to keep the images small. There are more findings out there but these should do for now.
