Beading is such a beautiful form of art. Feast your eyes on the jaw-dropping hand-worked beauty that is haute couture. Chanel, Prada, that beautiful Ralph Lauren beaded collar and back and those incredible shoes by Aminah Abdul-Jillil. Crystals, gems, pearls, seed beads, pipe beads. On silk, on velvet, strung on wire or sewn into the finest fabric. In your hair, on your feet, gracing your wardrobe. Everywhere, you guys. I’m in love.
