Seed beads can be used in so many ways — even in hair accessories! Cynthia used beautiful seed beads from one of our Artbeads Designer Seed Bead Blends to create a wonderful braided look in her headband. The seed bead strands work wonderfully together and will add some color to your style. You can see other ideas for using beads in hair accessories in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
