Why is a Bead Mat Necessary When Working With Seed Beads?

By: Paul Shane

Before we jump on to why we need a bead mat, let us first see what seed beads are. Seed beads are tiny beads that come in variety of sizes and a vast range of colours and colour combinations. They are tiny, but when lots of them are strung together, they make beautiful and fantastic jewellery. They can be used to make necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and lots of other jewellery.

Now they are so tiny that when we actually get down to work using seed beads, they may just run and scatter here and there. This may result in loss of beads as you might not be able to fetch all of them. And this can also lead to crumbling of your concentration at work, which is quite frustrating at times. Jewellery making is an art and a fulfilling hobby. Getting disturbed continuously may just result in your losing interest and might just damage the design of your jewellery.

Therefore, it is necessary to have a bead mat while working on beads. A bead mat is a small mat made up of felt or velvet. These materials prevent the beads to bounce and scatter around when they fall. Also, they make is easy to pick the beads with fingers or tweezers.

Bead mats are easily available with online shops that provide jewellery making tools and equipments. You can search for ex beading accessories and with that you can get bead mats. You can select from a range of colours that you would find comfortable to work on.

And if you are looking for of different colours, then you can also get them on some very good online shops for beads and other jewellery materials. You can shop for all kind of seed beads, including Toho seed beads, Czech seed beads and Russian seed beads.
