Handcrafted / Handmade Beaded Necklaces

- by Kathleen A Turner

This week's theme: Strung Together

Seed Beads are uniformly shaped, spheroidal beads ranging in size from under a millimetre to several millimetres. "Seed Bead" is a generic term for any small bead. Usually rounded in shape, seed beads are most commonly used for loom and off-loom bead weaving. They may be used for simple stringing, or as spacers between other beads in jewelry. Larger seed beads are used in various fiber crafts for embellishment, or crochet with fiber or wire. - Wikipedia

Sometimes simply strung, other times elaborately woven - the beauty and the versatility of seed beads means they find their way into many types of creative expression. This week, EBSQ's Art Of The Day will focus on seed beads and just a few of the ways they can be used to create unique and beautiful personal accessories.
