What exactly is a bead? A bead is an object that has a hole drilled through it, making it ideal for stringing, wire wrapping, or weaving. There are metal beads, gemstone beads, crystal beads, acrylic and resin beads - that's just to name a few. Beads can be round or square or oval or puffed or flat; they can be the focal piece of your jewelry designs or they can be spacers. You can use beads for jewelry making or you can use them in other crafting applications such as scrapbooking, macrame and knitting. Browse our generous selection of beads below and see just how easy it is to get inspired to create something beautiful!
