Bead crafts have been around for hundreds of years. The first bead crafts were probably related to adorning clothing with thousands of tiny beads, but artists soon discovered the many opportunities using beads: crafts for other items such as baskets, jars, and ornaments. There are many wonderful examples of bead crafts in museums around the world. But beaded crafts don't have to be big and elaborate. An ordinary object can be turned into a treasure by adding some beads! Use beads to craft fabulous easter eggs and add sparkle to your next egg hunt.

Beaded Basket Craft
Dutch Spiral Basket by Alison Eastman
The inspiration for this beaded craft was developed while working on a Dutch spiral bracelet. Alison thought that the stitch would lend itself well to a bag. So she set about making a Dutch spiral bag. A wonderful thing happened halfway through. She looked down at her partially finished bag and saw the cutest ring basket! It was the perfect size to hold earrings and rings on top of the dresser. This project can be made with any number of combinations. For instance, you can use large bugle beads, or you can make the basket monochromatic, or make each row a different color. Beaded fringe can even be added to the top. The variations are really endless and the project is quick enough for you to try them all.
