A bead can be used as an ornament on clothing, or to make several other
items. It is a small, decorative object that is pierced for threading or
stringing, and several beads can be threaded together on a string to form
a necklace. It is a common form of jewelry among women, and can be
crafted in different ways to suit their personalities. And if you think
beads are for only making jewelry then you are in for a big surprise.

Beadwork has now undergone many new forms. There are natural and manmade
beads with different shapes, colors and sizes which can be combined to
create a beautiful piece of beadwork. Beads can be made into different
shapes, like round, oval, and square, as per requirements. Beads can be
made from a number of materials, like bone, shell, teeth, claws, stone,
clay, metal or any other hard material capable of keeping its shape and
having a hole drilled in it, making it possible to attach to jewelry with
string or metal.

Beads serve multiple purposes and can be used to decorate or embellish an
outfit or accessory, like a handbag, shoe or coat. They can also be used
to create decorative household items, like cushion covers and table mats.
They can be combined with sequins and other embroidery threads to weave a
beautiful design. They are so simple and easy that anyone can use them.
And that is why they are gaining popularity among women who can now
create their own jewelry pieces at less than half the cost of a regular
jewelry item.

Some beads, like Swarovski crystal, are expensive but add great value to
the product they are used on. Then there are beads which carry spiritual
appeal, such as the rosary beads people use for keeping count of prayers.

There has been an excessive increase in the demand for beaded items.
Among the vast range of beads available in the market, one can select the
quality and price of bead which best suits their budget.
