The range of patterns is only limited by minds creativity. The beading technique involves weaving of very tiny “Delica” Seed beads (made of glass) coming from Japan using a fine but very strong thread. The uniqueness of these beads lies in their exact dimensions and cuts. The three key methods used include Peyote, Crochet and Loom weaving.
