Mardi Gras Beads: Bead Twisting

Mardi Gras bead twisting is the art of twisting Mardi Gras beads necklace into shapes and designs. Mardi Gras bead twisting developed from balloon twisters that worked the Showboat Casino in East Chicago Indiana. The Casino would have entertainers pass out Mardi Gras beads to guests for playing select promotional games or while guests were waiting to board the Casino. The Casino entertainers would pass out hundreds of Mardi Gras beads daily.

When the gambling boats first started in the Midwest they were required to have actual boarding times, even thought they were anchored you could only board or disembark every hour and a half. This meant the entertainers would have 45 minute shifts, which allowed them to play with the Mardi Gras beads. The entertainers had years of balloon twisting experience they quickly recognized the Mardi Gras beads are just a string of balloon bubbles. They then started twisting the Mardi Gras beads into balloon animal shapes. This was the start of Mardi Gras bead twisting in the Midwest.

I learned the basic art from these twisters and have developed new designs which I have written in the book -- Twisting Mardi Gras Beads. This book gives step-by-step instructions on how to twist Mardi Gras bead necklace into works of art. This book is great for kids and adult who want to personalize their Mardi Gras jewelry with a twist.
