Beadwork Methods

In general, beading is embroidered on the fabric in two ways:

  1. The beads are sewn on the fabric by a beading needle. In this case, the durability of the product is high.
  2. The beads are stringed in pairs with a beading needle, and placed in the desired place on the fabric and sewn with thread and needle on the fabric. In this case, the durability of the product is less.

Loom and off-loom weaving, stringing, bead embroidery, bead crochet, bead knitting, and bead tatting are also different types of beadwork techniques.
