A chrysalis or aurelia hides a beautiful butterfly. Unfortunately there is no butterfly in this beaded bead. Nonetheless my daughter gave this name to the beaded bead, because the shape and the hollow structure remind her of a chrysalis.
This is another no-special-bead project. I used 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads and some bicone crystals to create them.

Kathleen Chenille beaded bead is an easy to make beaded bead tutorial with flowers. “No special beads” project. I used Japanese Toho seed beads in two sizes (11/0 and 15/0) only, and a round wooden bead with the diameter of 2 cm. The size of the finished beadwork is 2,4 cm (1 inch) across. You can use your beaded bead as a pendant, a key fob, or a bag ornament as well.
This design is based on Geneviève Liebaert’s Chenille spiral.

I designed this little beaded bead (its diameter is just 12 mm) exclusively for International Beading Week 2020.
I named my creation Ladybird Beaded Bead, because the red one remembers me to a tiny cute ladybird.
If you create one piece it can be used as a tiny pendant. From two pieces you can make a pair of earrings. From more pieces you can create longer earrings, and if you can’t stop beading them – as I did 🙂 – you can make a bracelet, or a whole necklace from them.

Aglio beaded bead is a part of my Aglio jewellery collection. The name Aglio means garlic. The structure of the beaded bead contains 5 “cloves” and when I created a pendant from it, and attached the bead cap to the beaded bead, its shape reminded me of a garlic (hence the name).

Beaded beads in different lighting…
I recommend you the Lantern Beaded Beads, if you like transparent glass beads, glowing colours, gold, richly decorated beadworks and beaded beads. You don’t need any special beads to create them. I only used Czech fire polished beads, and Japanese Toho seed beads in two sizes (11 and 15) for this project. You can make a funny light string for summer nights, if you put the beaded beads onto the Christmas lights.

Ramya beaded beads are simple, easy to make, but first of all wearable beaded beads. You don’t need to put any beads or pearls inside this beadwork, because it has a self-supporting structure, what gives a beautiful lacy appearance to it. This is a “no-special-bead” project, you need only Japanese Toho seed beads (size 11/0, and 15/0) and Czech fire polished beads (size 3 mm and 4 mm) to create it.

Nadia is a flat chenille stitch beading tutorial. I designed the Nadia Bracelet to match the Chenille Beaded Beads. Nadia is the perfect complement to these little beads. I created it in blue-green shades (like the Chenille Beaded Beads), but I absolutely recommend you try it in the delicate, elegant, harmonious creamy colours, if you like the low key jewelries for weekdays.
