Posted by adortalukdar on April 23rd, 2014

Being natural beads, wood beads are frequently used for crafts, jewelry and home décor purposes. They are usually made into jewelry by tying them together using a wire or string. Some artisans also use chains and leather straps to make unique jewelry. They are versatile and can be used naturally as carved, painted, polished or even stained to look different. Most of the artisans use these beads as spacers to reduce the cost of the overall jewelry. However, they can also be used as the focal point of the piece based on the shape, size and color. Other common sighting of these beads is in hairstyling, where they are used in between the braids or at the bottom of the braid. As they are available in various shapes and sizes they make the perfect hair accessories.

The hole in the centre holds the hair and also keeps the bead in place. Since the olden days, wood beads have been used in the creation of lamps as well. It is common to find the lamp switch string having a bead at the end of it. Similarly, one can also see them hanging in the ceiling fan switches, wall mount fan switches and blind strings and so on. Different colored beads are used based on the color of the fan or light to add beauty. For instance, in a wall mount fan, the strings contain different colored beads for easy identification of on and off switches.

Another common usage of these beads is seen in Christmas decorations. The garlands that are made to decorate the Christmas tree contain these wood beads. As they can be dyed or painted in different colors like gold, red or silver, they accentuate the Christmas tree, beautifully. Similarly, different ornaments containing same colored beads in different sizes or different colored beads can be made and hung on the Christmas tree.

As they are versatile and can be painted, symbols can be painted on the wooden bead ornaments and hung from the branches. Specifically, these look good on large trees that are placed outside or on natural trees that are in the front yard. Separation curtain can be created at home using long strings containing these beads. Multi colored beads or every string in different color will look beautiful on the doorway.
