Beadwork is the art of stringing beads next to one another or sewing beads to fabric. Beads have actually been around as long as 5,000 years ago. Ancient tribes used beads to create adornments and fashion jewelry. Sometimes the adornments were a form of identification or status level. Ancient beads made from seeds and shells have been found along the Nile River. The truth is beading can be very enjoyable. Many people enjoy creating their own jewelry or adding sparkling beads to a great article of clothing. Beadwork techniques include loom weaving, off loom weaving, stringing, bead embroidery, bead crochet and bead knitting. You can find many styles of wholesale jewelry using beaded designs.

Description: Glass Beads
Creating beautiful pieces means intense concentration, which allows the bead worker to really enjoy the creative process. One form of stringing is the Asian art of 3D beading. The beads are strung on wire and- by using angle weaves and peyote stitch- artists actually make bead figurines. Native Americans loom weave with glass seed beads to create bracelets, belts, purses and much more.
