Bead Bracelets

This is the latest ones that I made.
All are done using spiral rope chain method.

Beading is one of the hobbies I like to do very often.
There are many types of beads available in the market.
Choosing right color and combination of bead sizes is the first step for a successful outcome.
Then the design has be chosen carefully according to the bead color and bead size.
Beading tools like thread, cutter and other tools have to be kept at arms length.

The needle for the beading work should be carefully chosen.
The needle should be very thin and able to pass through the hole of beads.
Sometimes it has to pass through the same bead many times.
Then also the needle along with the thread/wire has to pass through easily.

The beading thread or nylon wire is also other important item to get a good result.
These are available in various thicknesses in the market.
We have to carefully select according to our needs.

After doing beading work finishing a work very neatly is the most important aspect of beading.
