Despite their popularity, quality television shows that walk people through the art of making jewelry are few and far between.  While a program may occasionally start up on a local access or public T.V. channel, most disappear just as quickly as they come.  This makes programs like Beads, Baubles and Jewels all the more special, as they provide a creative outlet through which those interested in beads and bauble can expand their talents while learning elementary techniques as well.

The program, typically featured on PBS Create channels across the United States, walks viewers through the steps required to make impressive pieces of jewelry and ornamentation.  Among other items, viewers can expect to learn to make earrings, necklaces, bracelets and brooches from simple wire and bead materials that are readily available at any arts and crafts store.  The program provides information that, while readily available on the internet and in some how-to books, is often difficult to follow when printed on the page.  Actually making projects as they are explained and created on the television gives many people the added illustration they need to craft beads and bauble into the most creative constructions they can.

Tutorials and services similar to the projects illustrated on Beads, Baubles and Jewels can often be found through internet resources such as YouTube, which feature videos of techniques like those on the show.  Unfortunately, hosts of such videos are rarely as experienced or informative as Katie Hacker, the show’s host.  After hosting twelve seasons of beads and bauble, it is hard to imagine that anyone might be better at walking crafters of all levels of experience through the complex projects tackled on the show.

In addition to the television show, the producers of Beads, Baubles and Jewels provide online resources through their website that help illustrate the techniques taught on the show while providing a database of all topics included in past shows.  Those in need of a particular lesson can find DVDs featuring the information they need. Perhaps best of all, those who create a free member profile on the site gain access to dozens of project ideas and tutorials to make all sorts of accessories.  Finding quality craft instruction is difficult anywhere, whether in person, online, or on the television, and when a good resource is found it should be utilized as much as possible.  Beads and Baubles provides rare information for viewers, helping them improve their art while turning out impressive, wearable proof of their proficiency.
