So I was browsing around the internet, wondering if I should take up polymer clay again. (the answer is no, not now), when I remembered how I used to love making pillow beads, and I got to wondering if I could replicate them with seed beads and SuperDuos.
I soon figured out how to get the flat side, and had to work on the seed beads that would allow the two sides to join.
Several attempts and un-pickings later, this is the result.
The tutorial for the earrings is available now. I am currently working on a necklace, with a bigger pillow bead in the middle. That was very tricky, but we got there and I'm thrilled with the results, which should be available to show you soon.
I'm Teresa, the designer and writer of the tutorials you see, and a bead addict.
