 B is for...

Hello, my fellow artisans and crafters, I'm back early! :w00t: 
I've decided to make this Tutorial Round-up a twice-monthly event (otherwise I'll never get them all finished!) There's a lot of fun stuff this time around. We're expanding, too! So please bear with me and keep reading. I promise this to be fun! 

Before we start... 

I'm recruiting! :iconcrartisancrafts: and :iconprojecteducate: are teaming up for a week of educational fun in November (tentatively November 13th-17th). We are looking for contributors! If you have that burning desire to share what you know with the rest of the community, let us know! We'd love to have you! :w00t: 

Oh, and we are teaming up with the Fanart community for a contest as well. We're looking for prize donations. Let me know if you want to contribute! :D (Yes, contributors can be contestants!) More details to follow! :w00t:

OK... back to your regularly-scheduled tutorials... ;) 

What is it? 

 "Beading" is an art of stringing beads together to create both 2-D and 3-D patterns. Originally created as an extension of embellishing textiles and lace, beading has really taken on a life of its own in recent years. The crafts has widely expanded with the creation of mass-production of glass beads and later crystal beads. Improvements in the thread material has also undergone several changes, from natural fibres to metal wire and finally to a range of plastics. Most recently, there's the creation of soft-plastic "Perler" beads. The world of beading is always expanded into new horizons! :w00t:
