Description: Bead crusting is covering an object with a sewn layer of a selected bead mix until it is either covered completely or decorated in a specific area. The technique results in a highly decorative effect—no counting of beads is involved, and no glue. In many cases the beads do not need to be attached individually and can be sewn onto the desired object in multiples, allowing you to cover an area quite quickly. The instructions for the crusted items show a variety of crusting options. All the tassels are based on a basic beaded tassel construction method—only the beaded drops and the tassel tops vary from the basic tassel. Several versions require minimal counting of beads for the drops, or the repetition of a simple pattern, but generally their construction remains the same. Once the tassel-drop construction techniques are understood, it is possible to vary them to create even more tassels in many different ways. Colour photographs, instructional illustrations and text lead you step-by-step to help you create beautiful decorative items that are quick, easy and lots of fun.
