Chances are, you know about internet forums. They are virtual worlds where people gather and discuss just about anything. When I have questions about something I go straight to a related forum for my answers. I've used them for everything from grouting tile to gold fish ailments. But that's not what I wanted to tell you today.
In the event that you might not know what forums are, I would like to direct you to a handful of jewelry making forums that I know of , and invite you to share others that aren't mentioned here. Please either leave a comment or email our suggestion box so that we can update this list!
Here are a few to get you started:
Bead & Button Communities
Beading and Jewelry related
Predominantly Lampworkers (glass bead makers) but they have a section for jewelry, PMC/Metal work as well as some other areas.
Large art forum site for all media but also a large glass bead area and a place for Wearable Arts
About.com: Jewelry Making
Again, send us your favorites so we can let the world know.
