All About Beading – from 92Y Jewelry Center’s Faculty
Beadwork is the art or craft of attaching beads to one another.
The simplest method is stringing beads on to a thin cord, thread or wire. (Beads may also be woven together employing the use of needle and thread.) Beadwork techniques are broadly divided into loom and off-loom weaving, stringing and knotting, bead embroidery, bead knitting, bead crochet. Contemporary beadwork also encompasses combining wire and chain with beads and macramé with beads.
