Beads are a small decorative object that can be of various shapes and sizes, such as stone, bone, shell, glass, plastic, wood or pearls, with a small hole for threading or stringing. The size of the beads varies from less than 1 millimeter (0.03 inch) to more than 1 centimeter (0.39 inch) in diameter. A pair of beads made from Nassarius sea snail shells, approximately 100,000 years old, are considered the earliest known jewel patterns. Beadwork is an art or craft for making things with beads. Beads can be woven together with a special thread, strung onto thread or soft, flexible wire or glued to the surface (for example, cloth, clay).

Beads can be divided into several types of overlapping categories based on various criteria, such as the materials from which they are made, the process used to make them, the place or period of origin, the patterns of their surfaces or their overall shape. In some cases, such as millefiori and cloisonne beads, several categories may overlap in an interdependent fashion.

Beads can be made of different materials. The earliest beads are made from a variety of natural materials that can be easily gathered and could be readily drilled and shaped.
