Beading is a popular form of needlework. And for good reason. Beads make beautiful products: brooches, bracelets, toys, flowers. Perhaps not such a two- or three-dimensional product, which could not be created from bright beads and metal wire.
Beading dates back to the time of the Egyptian pharaohs. In Ukraine and Europe, this handicraft art became popular in the first half of the nineteenth century. Of course, modern materials and techniques differ from those that were two centuries ago, but the basic principles of jewelry making were laid exactly at that time.
Beading can be learned by anyone. There are a lot of master classes, schemes, lessons on the Internet. If you have all the necessary accessories at hand, even a novice weaver will quickly learn the basics of needlework and be able to create your first masterpiece.
