Over the years, Indian bead makers have perfected their bead-making skills, and today, India is one of the largest bead producers in the world - with the majority of beads being produced in Varanasi – located in the northeast of the sub-continent.
Ranging from hand-carved wooden beads to tiny glass seeds, the traditional beads found in India cover a wide range of styles, materials, and treatment processes.
The beads made in Varanasi are exported in huge quantities throughout the world.
