What do you think when you think of beading? What do you think other people think of beading?
You know how to make jewelry. Or maybe you don’t and that’s why you’re visiting our website. Either way, you have an interest in fashion jewelry so it might be a little difficult to imagine how other people perceive beading. Heck, they might not even know what beading means! We think its about time people dropped preconceived notions about what beading is and take a look at some practical applications for hobby jewelry making.
Beading for Kids:
The average attention span of children has dwindled over the years, and parents have been struggling to keep up with ways to keep them busy ever since. What about beading? Introducing your children to hobby jewelry making at younger ages can help stimulate creative thought and give them a start on developing the types of thought processes that will help them in school and higher levels of learning.
Not only that, but surrounding a child with glass and crystal beads of all sorts of beautiful colors might actually calm them down enough for mom and take to take a quick breather!
Beading for Adolescents:
So you have a cranky teenager who listens to loud music in their room all day and only ventures into the world to surprise you with inflated phone bills, right? It’s okay, we’ve all been there. How can beading help? Why not make it a bonding activity! Teenagers are all about self-expression, so if you frame the activity in a creative context, they might just take to it! Beading with an adolescent might be an interesting experience… but let me ask you this: Would you rather them adorn themselves with homemade fashion jewelry made of the most beautiful semi-precious stones and crystal beads? Or would you rather them surprise you with an impromptu tattoo? Not only are you bonding with your kids, you’re keeping them out of trouble!
Beading for Adults:
Aside from loving beads and fashion jewelry, adults also love things like accomplishment, money, and the ability to afford food. Why not combine them all? This business started as a sandwich shop and antique store, but we were able to fold in all the things that we loved into what is now the Brazos Collection you see today. If you truly have a deep love for beading and making homemade jewelry, why not try to sell your art? Sure, not everybody can pay the rent with a hobby, but you never know until you try. Plus, you can save yourself some money by making your own designer jewelery! (Hey, you designed it, so you’re a jewelry designer, right?)
Beading for the Elderly:
When you get older, staying active mentally and creatively is a necessity to keeping your mind sharp. Creating your personal jewelry designs and finding new ways to arrange glass beads and semi-precious stones can help boost your mental activity and give you something to do in between visits to relatives and fishing trips. You can also make all your family members unique and creative gifts made from high quality beads that they’ll be sure to love!
No matter how old you are, you’re never to old to explore the world of jewelry making. Beading and making jewelry is not only a means of expressing your artistic thoughts to the world, but it can have practically fulfilling uses too.
