Thesaurus of Beading
Introduction
Beads are one of the oldest known human art forms and span almost all known human
cultures. They can be traced back as far as 40,000 B.C. in the archeological record; shell
and bone beads have been found that predate cave paintings and carved figures. Bead
historians theorize that bead stringing was the first beading technique using plant fibers
(vines) and objects with naturally occurring holes. Bead embroidery in the form of ivory
beads stitched onto fur clothing and boots has been found dating back to the Cro-Magnon
era and evidence of more elaborate embroidery has been documented in Byzantine
mosaics and medieval paintings and tapestries. Bead netting artifacts dated between 664
– 525 B.C. were found in Egypt but historians believe the technique probably predates
these artifacts. Brick stitch and peyote stitch are also ancient techniques and been used in
the Americas, Africa, and the Middle East. Herringbone stitch has also been traced back
to Africa and the Middle East. Right-angle weave appeared in multiple countries
including Russia, the Philippines, and Japan with examples dating back to the 17th
century. The history of square stitch is more obscure but one researcher believes it may
have emerged in China, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
Over the past few centuries the popularity of beading as a pass-time has waxed and
waned. It is currently enjoying a new resurgence, fueled in part by the availability of
materials and interchange of ideas and projects through the Internet. Multiple magazines
focused on beading are currently in publication as are many “how-to” books focused on
various aspects of beading and a multitude of web sites dedicated to beading.

About this thesaurus
This thesaurus presents a controlled vocabulary for the art of beading and related
projects. These terms can be used for indexing and retrieving documents in this subject
area. Detailed classification of beads and non-beading jewelry-making supplies and
techniques are outside the scope of this thesaurus.
In addition to providing a standardized language for describing a subject, thesauri also
provide information about the relationships between terms in the vocabulary. This is
accomplished in two ways, through a hierarchical structure and in an annotated
alphabetical display. In the hierarchy, terms for more specific concepts are indented
beneath terms for broader concepts (e.g. stringing material and silk thread). The
alphabetical display lists all constituents of the vocabulary with scope notes defining their
meaning within in this thesaurus and their relationship to other terms within the
vocabulary. These semantic relationships are:
Broader
term
BT
Indicates a related term that is broader in scope. Usually, this will
be the more general term under which the specific term is indented
in the hierarchy.
Narrower
term
NT
Indicates terms that are more specific in scope. These are the terms
indented under this term in the hierarchy. If there are multiple
layers of indentation only the level immediately beneath this term
is indicated by this relationship.
Related
term
RT
Indicates an associative relationship, one that non-hierarchical. For
example, the concept of weaving is related to looms and vice versa.
The RT relationship is always reciprocal.
Equivalence
USE Thesauri encompass both “preferred” terms (e.g. the term chosen to
UF represent a concept in the vocabulary) and “entry” terms or
synonyms to the preferred terms. Users are directed to the
preferred term for synonyms by the USE relationship. In return,
each preferred term in the alphabetical contains a list of its
synonyms. This relationship is described by the UF or “use for”
relationship.
Take for example, the term adhesives.

Adhesives
SN: substances which cause things to stick together. Can also be used to prevent fraying
at cut ends.
BT
NT
Supplies
Cement
Glue
Nail Polish
In this example adhesives are a type of supply, therefore Supplies is a broader term.
Cement, glue, and nail polish are types of adhesives and therefore are narrower terms.
The term bending usefully illustrates the concept of a related term. In this instance
bending is a method of applying curvature to an object. It is a type of technique used
with wire and therefore Wire-working techniques is listed as a broader term. Anvils,
hammers, jigs, and pliers are all used to bend materials and therefore are related concepts.
Sculpture can be created through bending, wire is material that is bent, and wrapping is
technique that is similar to bending – all these concepts are also represented as related
terms.
