Beaded Trim by the yard is a more decorative and fancy trim that consists of beads sewn to a header tape or gimp. The beads can be one bead or many beads of the same kind or a variety of beads. They can be glass, wood, ceramic, or fabric covered. Sometimes a tassel can be mixed in. This kind of decorative trim is most commonly used on draperies, valances, pillows, and lamp shades.
