My beaded beads have come a long way, from my very first experiments with simple peyote stitch tubes, all the way to creating a beaded bead-within-a-beaded bead while I was learning how to create a beaded dodecahedron using right-angle weave. There are so many ways to embellish and enhance this basic beaded structure to make fabulous beaded beads using all kinds of your favorite beading supplies and glass beads. Small round glass druks, crystal bicones, two-hole seed beads, and even two-hole Tila beads can all be used to create an amazing array of self-supporting beaded beads.
Wow, sounds complicated, right? It certainly took a lot of trial, and even more errors, before I figured out what I was doing and could design my own beaded beads. If you've always wanted to learn how to create your own beaded beads, now you can learn the basics in a special live webinar: How to Make Beaded Beads: Instructions and Techniques for Creating Outstanding Beaded Beads with bead artist Cindy Holsclaw.
Cindy is known for her incredibly detailed beaded beads, made with everything from seed beads to Tila beads.
