Beadwork

Beadwork

Explore the many techniques in the world of beading – from peyote stitch, to loom weaving to kumihimo and more.  Beadwork is the art and craft of using beads to decorate textiles, make jewelry and art, using thread or thin wire, and needle to attach beads either to themselves or a surface.

Beadwork includes stringing beads, loom weaving, off-loom weaving and bead embroidery. Beads can be functional or decorative, adding some bling or surface design to a piece.
