Bead making has become a very profitable venture in our
society today. If you have taken your time to look around, especially on
wedding, burial or naming ceremonies, you will notice different designs of
beads especially on the ladies. The beads come in different colours, shapes and
sizes. Beads are usually worn for beautification and fashion purposes
especially by ladies. Some beads are even worn for ritual purposes by some
traditionalist.
Bead making in the last decade has experienced a market boom
because of the paradigm shift in fashion style amongst the ladies. Beads have
gradually replaced gold and silver necklaces and bangles, and more and more
designs are created almost on a daily basis.
TYPES OF BEADS
Beads could be traditional beads, cooperate beads or casual
beads.
Traditional beads are those beads worn in traditional
ceremonies like traditional weddings, burial ceremonies, village meetings and
traditional festivals.
Cooperate Beads are those beads that can be worn to offices.
They are usually very simple with mild colours.
WHAT CAN YOU MAKE WITH BEADS?
There are a lot of things that can be made with beads, and
new discoveries are springing up everyday. I was on my way to a friends place
last Xmas, and i saw a “Father Christmas” made with beads. So you can believe
with me that the opportunities in bead making are endless. Here are some things
that can be done with beads. Please feel free to drop a comment in the comment
