Making Beaded Jewelry Is Easy to Do
Making beaded jewelry is an inexpensive and fun hobby that
nearly anyone can do. The materials needed are readily accessible
and cost very little money. Aside from the requisite thread,
needle and the beads, there are also some other materials that
the hobbyist can use in making beaded jewelry. Hobbyists can also
experiment with various beading techniques to make interesting
and unique creations.
There are several techniques involved in making beaded
jewelry. Stringing is one, and wire-working with beads is
another. Various types of string are available: cords, plastic,
twine. Additionally, silk and nylon threads can also be utilized
in making beaded jewelry. Using hemp fiber in beaded jewelry
making is a nice touch - it makes for an unusual product and
would also be a great topic for conversation. Wire of various
thicknesses is another popular option. Additionally, wire is used
to make beaded jewelry items such as necklaces, hairpins and
earrings, and to attach clasps.
Beads for jewelry come in all shapes and forms as well. In
spite of beaded jewelry's reputation for being inexpensive, a
person can also use precious gemstones like pearls and precious
metals, such as gold and silver, to make beaded dress
accessories. For beginners, however, less costly materials are
widely available for making beaded jewelry: glass, crystal,
coral, to name a few. Whatever materials the artist uses, he or
she is easily able to customize the type of beaded jewelry to be
worn personally, given as a gift, or sold to beaded jewelry
To enhance the overall visual effect of the beads, a number of
knotting and stitching techniques are recommended. There are
simple knots and stitches for beginners, and with practice, they
will be able to progress to the more complicated and fancier
methods used in making beaded jewelry. It's interesting to note
that knots have mystical connotations in some cultures. For some
East Indians, knots can be used to curse a person. In Gypsy lore,
it is important to untie knots in the clothing of a woman in
childbirth. And the expression 'tying the knot' derives from the
ancient Romans, when the groom would untie the knots of his
bride's girdle before consummating the marriage. In which case,
it should be 'untying the knot.'
