tutorial and product review
A few months ago, I was asked by ArtBeads.com to review
some of there products. So, I decided to create a tutorial along with this
product review to showcase my use of the beads I got from them.
ArtBeads.com sent me the most AMAZING gold and metallic white gold beads
so I decided to make fabric beads with it.
Start with a strip of fabric and a cotton ball
Use a cotton thread to stitch the fabric down
Use a beading thread, (Nymo size D) to stitch beads on it.
Here, I used 24 karat gold plated beads.
I've never worked with gold beads before, but I completely
loved working with these.
They really sparkle and stand out against the fabric and
they were incredibly easy and smooth to stitch through.
Each bead is uniform in size, no snagging or sharp edges.
Once the beads are stitched to the fabric, you can string
it up to make a necklace, or ornament anything of your choice.
