Seed Bead
Jewelry Design
History
• Jewelry is one of the
  oldest forms of body
  adornment.

• The first pieces of
  jewelry were made from
  natural materials, such
  as bone, animal teeth,
  shell, wood and carved
  stone.
Jewelry Uses
• Currency: wealth display & storage

• Function: clasps, pins & buckles

• Symbolism: to show membership or status
   – Examples: Christian crucifix, Jewish Star of David,
     wedding rings

• Protection: amulets & magical wards

• Artistic Display: just for looks or showing one’s style
   – Jewelry has always been artistic, but this use took primacy
     over wealth and function starting in the late 19th century
Types of Jewelry
• High-Quality Jewelry: made with
  gemstones and precious metals, such as
  silver or gold

• Art Jewelry: design and creativity are
  prized above material value

• Costume Jewelry: less costly due to being
  mass-produced from lower value materials
Seed Bead Jewelry
• Smallest type of beads used to create
  jewelry

• Embroidery Technique: seed beads are
  sewn or “woven” onto a fabric backing
Materials & Tools
• Thread: Nymo
  (nylon), wire, braided
  thread

• Crimp Beads: soft
  metal bead that is
  crimped around the
  wire to hold a clasp
  in place.

• Crimp Pliers: used to
  attach crimp beads
Materials & Tools
• Beading Needles: thin and
  bendable

• Decorative Beads: seed
  beads, wooden beads, etc.


• “Findings”: hardware needed to
  finish a piece of jewelry
   – Examples: Barrel clasps, crimp
      beads, earring wires, etc.
Attaching A Crimp Bead
• Two-step process used with
  beading wire

• Using a crimp pliers, first
  crimp the bead around the
  wire using the hole closest
  to the handles

• Then, fold the crimped bead
  back onto itself using the
  hold closet to the tip of the
  pliers
2 Basic Techniques
• Daisy Chain




• Ladder Stitch
