ok so I know this thread is kinda old but I just stumbled on it... I have some stupid questions.... are the beads strung together or loose?

Not stupid questions at all! Smiley

They're both.  I found some Valentine's beads that were on strands like Mardis Gras beads, so I used those for the main filling.  Then I sprinkled loose beads all over where there were gaps.

The strands of beads are opaque gold and red.  The loose beads are the transluscent pinks and purples.

I'm loving all the melted bead bowls I've seen on Craftster, but this takes the cake!  It's awesome as a lampshade!

I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

My kids are the reason I was born.

Amazing, I had good luck with small ones but I am having major issues with not cooling the big one enough before shaping it over the bowl so it melted fast and got under the metal bowl I used... not happy, next time I am going to take foil and put it over the bowl and out from it.
Someday I want to do some like yours

Oooh, I would love to see yours!  Due to having a kiddo in the house now, I haven't melted in a few years.  I miss it much!
