MAKE LOTS OF MONEY FROM BEAD MAKING

make money from bead making

Bead making has become a very profitable venture in our society today. If you have taken your time to look around, especially on wedding, burial or naming ceremonies, you will notice different designs of beads especially on the ladies. The beads come in different colours, shapes and sizes. Beads are usually worn for beautification and fashion purposes especially by ladies. Some beads are even worn for ritual purposes by some traditionalist.
Bead making in the last decade has experienced a market boom because of the paradigm shift in fashion style amongst the ladies. Beads have gradually replaced gold and silver necklaces and bangles, and more and more designs are created almost on a daily basis.

TYPES OF BEADS
Beads could be traditional beads, cooperate beads or casual beads.
Traditional beads are those beads worn in traditional ceremonies like traditional weddings, burial ceremonies, village meetings and traditional festivals.
Cooperate Beads are those beads that can be worn to offices. They are usually very simple with mild colours.
