10/8/16 I just finished making all of the above bead art. I used just one pattern (the X Sm Circle from Collection 5). The beads used were purchased at Wal-Mart and JoAnn Fabrics.

10/20/16 YouTube instructional video, now available. Would love feedback! Thanks, Shell

10/24/16 New YouTube instructional video uploaded. This one is a new idea that came to me last week - accent beads.  Hope to have some images to add here soon. Hope you enjoy the video, Shell

 

This first doily is made with 10 or 12 mm round beads. The beads look and feel like stone.  I used 12 lb test monofilament fishline for the string.  This particular doily I use for stress relieve and joint relief in my hands after clicking with the mouse for too long.  The only downside to this is the stones cut away at the string as I roll them between my hands.  I have had to restring this one twice.  But it is worth it to me.

Finished Doily Size: 5" x 5"

 

This happy face is made up of earrings, pendant and matching bracelets. I used Glass Luster Seed Beads 10/0 with Nylon Thread .005. As you can see, I rotated the colors in the design with each X Sm Circle I made.

Although seed beads are not uniform in size, they are small enough that they still work well.  I just recommend avoiding the extra wide and extra thin ones.

Finished Doily Size (for 1 X Sm Circle): 1" x 1"

 

This one, I used two completely different bead shapes.  Both are 4mm high, so they are uniform in size and worked well together to create this lovely pendant.  Beads used: Rondell Crystal (Pink) 4mmx6mm and Lt Sapphire Glass 4mm Cube.  String used: Champion Invisible Cord (purchased through FireMountainGems.com)

Finished Doily Size: 2 3/4" x 2 3/4"

 

Here are some Chrismas Ornaments.  These 2 are created with 6mm beads and are strung together with Nylon Threads.  They just need some Christmas Ornament Hooks and they will be all set to hang on the tree.

Finished Doily Size: 3" x 3"

 

Here are some more Chrismas Ornaments.  These 2 are created with 1/4" beads and are strung together with Nylon Threads.  These too just need some Christmas Ornament Hooks and they will be all set to hang on the tree.

Finished Doily Size: 3" x 3"
