These birch wood balls are covered in organic cotton thread and hand crocheted by Tesla Baby.
Each bead takes 30 minutes to crochet so $2.00 is a bargain!
In the last three photos you can see these beads being used in a necklace and two types of teethers. These combine beautifully with our silicone beads, wood beads, and wood rings and were made in colors that would match or coordinate with our extensive color collection.
The key to successfully getting them on the 2 mm cord we sell is to slightly melt the end to make it hard like a needle. Do this by putting in a flame for a second then rolling it between your fingers. You'll want to do this to about 1" of cord to provide a good "needle" to push through the bead. These beads have a hole in the center and you'll see how the crochet lends itself to being on a string.
*** NOTE *** The color names for these balls are NOT perfect matches for the silicone beads but are very close so you have an idea of the color. If you want to see any of these crochet balls next to a particular silicone bead color please contact us.
