My DD got one of those bead kits as a gift. You can make a dozen types of key chains like duck, bumblebee, etc. Well, I can't make heads or tails of it and it says for ages 6 and over (I'm over by 32 years!) Thread the string this way then that, in and around, huh??? Anyone else have experience with these things?

Ok I have no idea if I will be of help but I just went to a jewelry making class and you string the beads (clamp one end so the beads dont fall off) and then after all the beads are on, loop the string thru the clasp and back into 2 or 3 of the beads and then use the little metal clasp to hold it all togehter. You crimp it to make the round bead flatten over the string. Does this make sense at all? I don't know if this is event he kind of kit you have but I hope that helps a bit...

We ahve a few of those kits but the girls at just now old enough to really do some so I haven't taken them out yet.
