Bead crafting is creative and fun for the entire family


PhotoPearls makes it possible for you to transform your digital photos into beaded art to hang in your home or give away as a unique gift.

The software or web app turns your chosen photo into a pattern, which tells you what bead to put where in order to recreate the photo.
