I read Rebecca Anderson's Songbeads blog regularly, and lately she's had the most adorable beaded beads featured. I've always wanted to know how to make cute little beaded beads, but have never managed it for some reason. Seems like most of the tutorials I've seen are for more complicated beads, which is not what I was looking for. Finally, I found a tutorial that was easy to follow, and managed to conquer the beaded bead!
Of course, it took a couple of tries to get it right. (Note to self: read directions carefully! Leaving out a step does make a difference!)
I need to make a little partner for it, and I could have a pair of earrings!
