Techniques of Beading
Unlike regular wool or thread embroidery, there are actually very few type of stiches which are used for the bead embroidery. Here are some commonly used techniques of beading:

Single Bead Attachment
This technique includes adding one bead at a time on the fabric with an individual knot at the anchor’s back separately. This technique works best for tiny seed beads or with larger beads anchored with a seed bead.

In this technique, 3-5 beads are attached together on the fabric from the back. In order to follow this technique, you need to bring your needle from the back side through the fabric, insert 3-5 beads, and then lay those beads down and stich back through the fabric, making a row of beads which is fairly loose.

Back Stitch
This techniques of beading moves very quickly when you get accustomed to it and is very secure as well. It initiates like the couching and when 3-5 beads are inserted, and then you are required to stitch these beads to the surface of the fabric in a loose manner before bringing the sewing needle back up near the second bead through the fabric.
