2016 Project: Beaded bead #6

Bead #6 is also multiple beads. They are Easter colored buckyballs made with Superduos. I think they are adorable, and my kitten thinks they are toys!

The construction of these beads is a mix of Bead #2, and the Buckyballs from last week. If you understand how to make both of those beads- these are fairly easy and fun to make. They are some of the bigger beaded beads I have made so far, but are still smaller than a ping-pong ball and look great as a pendant (see below)!

Bonus beads!!! I strung these three neon Mini-Duo Buckyballs together into a necklace. They do not have the additional embellishment like their Easter friends, but I am sure 15's would work. They are also made using the two color scheme in the tutorial pictures from last week. I find the multiple color scheme is easier to use when learning.

20 beads to go!

My remaining deadlines are:

Spring dates: (6 beads) 4/7, 4/21, 5/5, 5/19, 6/2, 6/16

Summer dates: (6 beads) 6/30, 7/14, 7/28, 8/11, 8/25, 9/8

Fall dates: (7 beads) 9/22, 10/6, 10/20, 11/3, 11/17, 12/1, 12/15

The last bead will be "due" on 12/29!

Thanks for reading and Happy Beading! -Beth
