Title: Heat applied melted-on faceted beads

Abstract: This invention is a method to attach beads to garments. The process is as follows: draw the art work, digitize the drawing and write it in a Laser cutting machine language, using a high heat resistance material, cut the material to the same shape as artwork, glue fabric on the back of screen to prevent beads from falling through, dip the screen in a container of beads in which the beads would fill up the holes and stay only where the cut holes are and where the beads extend beyond material. Laying the fabric on top of the pattern that have the beads and apply top heat with a lot of pressure, so the plastic bead portion that is sticking out of the screen melts into the fabric and bonds to it in seconds creating a beautiful beaded design that would have taken hours and days to make using the traditional sewn-on beading methods.
