Connecting those who love the art of handmade!

Beading is the art or craft of attaching beads to one another or to cloth, usually by the use of a needle and thread or soft, flexible wire. Most beading takes the form of jewelry or other personal adornment, but beads are also used in wall hangings and sculpture.  Visit our directory members' beading links for beading blogs, classes, finished art, groups, projects, media, magazines and supplies!
