Isn’t it funny how you can begin creating one thing, only for it to evolve into something completely different at the end? The exact thing happened with my new tutorial. It started life as an idea – I wonder if I can combine crystals and pearls with some seed beads to make a chunky beaded bead that would be self supporting? It was going great, but by the time I reached what would have been the halfway mark of the bead I realised that it was going to be too squishy and wouldn’t support itself. So I abandoned that idea and put the half made bead away.
Fast forward a long while. I came across that half made bead recently and something made me balance it on my finger…and I had my eureka moment! So out came the pearls, crystals and seed beads and I set to work. A few adjustments here and there and my new Crystal Pyramid ring was born. While it would have been squishy as a beaded bead, it sits perfectly sturdy when worn as a ring. You can find the tutorial here in my Etsy shop :)
