Beadwork has an old history.For example, in Ancient Russia there was a tradition to sew on sundresses, shirts, headdresses and footwear with multi-coloured beads. It Was considered that it was not only clothes ornament, but also protection against a malefice and any evil spirits.


Nowadays beadwork is again on the wave of popularity . You can find some articles in many modern magazines about beadwork. With the help of beadwork  it is possible to “hide” a hole on favourite jeans, to update an old cap or to decorate an evening dress.
For beadwork it’s necessary a needle , they usually can be bought in amateur shops, and have small and very thin ear. The needle easy passes in apertures of beads №11 and can drag behind itself folded double or four times a thread. Unfortunately, the needle is very thin and quickly break, therefore it is better to be reserved by the whole pack of needles  not to remain without the tool.

Drawi contours on a fabric are put by a chalk or soap (on a dark fabric), a pencil or a transfer paper (a light fabric). If the general background of an embroidery is light do not press a pencil, tracing lines, differently then they will appear through because of light beads. In this case it is possible to take advantage of special markers which disappear if a fabric to wet in water or vanish on the expiration of 24-48 hours.

As the scheme, it is possible to use planimetric drawings, pictures from the Internet. If your taste in beadwork is well developed, try such reception. Fix in a fabric a thread and string on it the beads who have turned out низку in length of centimetres 50-70 spread any way on a fabric. Through everyone 3-5 beads attach to the bottom by a fabric t thread with a needle. It is possible to deduce a thread intricate patterns, to spread a contour, to experiment colours and the sizes of beads, to add beads and pebbles. The result in any case will be surprising and unpredictable.
