Geometric beadwork is an advanced beading technique that allows intricate patterns to be hand crafted into unique pieces of art or personalized accessories. 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. Aside of regular jewelry items, this technique allows you to make 3 dimensional structure in a multitude of colors which can be then incorporated into any kind of personal accessories as charms, bookmarks, keyrings, bag holders etc. These beads are the finest seed beads in the world for no small reason.
