Clump Beading - Raised Bead Embroidery

4y ago


Clump or cluster beading is a raised bead embroidery method used by the Iroquois tribes of the Niagara Falls region 100 years ago. I've been looking for ways to reproduce, modify, and/or improve this fantastic style of bead embroidery for a couple of years. I just love it. This particular technique was commonly used, and often had long loops of beads dangling from the centers of the clusters.
