No doubt about it - making these little beaded beads is addictive! Just when you think you have enough, you get another idea for the perfect color to match that new outfit you recently picked up! And because they're quick to make, there will be nothing to stop you sitting down and making another one!
Step-by-step instructions with illustrations showing you everything you need to know to make these lovely beads. Wear one high on your neck like a choker, or hanging off your favorite long chain. Add a few additional beads (as in picture 5) for a more square look, or hang fringe off the bottom for more fun! I've even made a necklace with several beaded beads netted together.
The tutorial uses firepolish beads as the main color-givers, but you can use round beads as well (like Swarovski 5000er, druks or miracle beads).
In the 5th photo, I added some bicones overtop of the last row of firepolish beads. This is an embellishment that is not explained in the tutorial, but you can easily do yourself by sewing bicones to the connector beads of the top rows. It makes the bead more square, giving it a completely different look.
Be aware this pattern requires a 16mm core beads which was not mentioned. I like the design, but not a fan of having to deal with a core bead. Other beads are easily found and the tutorial is well written.
