What kind of clear beads did you use for this one?  Clear pony beads or something? And they just melt and cover your pattern?

For this one I used clear multi faceted beads like these...

I'm sure clear pony beads would work though.  I just have a preference to multi facet beads for clear & transparent pieces...not sure why really.  Smiley

I set the rhinestones in the pattern with a few clear beads around it to get them to stay in their pattern, then I baked it.  Once the first few clear beads had the pattern slightly stuck in place, I plopped a few more on top of it to make it seal over the pattern & baked it again.

Do more of what makes you happy.
