This is the beaded art of the Huichol Indians done with the tiniest bead available, size 14. The colors used with these tiny beads are very different than what you typically see with the regular size #11 bead. These pieces are considered to be some of the finest bead work done anywhere. Like pixels, the more dots per inch the sharper the image so the designs are very crisp and clear. The bead itself is much more expensive and it also requires almost twice the number of beads, so the prices for these pieces is going to be higher than the traditional art form.
