i love it! is there any way you could post a tutorial or somthing?

Here's a tutorial:

*Select your bead colors. I use pony beads.
*Line a cookie sheet with foil. Try to keep the foil as wrinkle free as possible.
*Lay out your design with your beads. Make sure the holes are facing up and down.
*Preheat your oven to 400F.
*CAREFULLY carry your cookie sheet to the oven and CAREFULLY place it in the oven with the rack placed in the middle position.
*Turn on your exhaust fan, open a window, open a door, anything to get ventilation! This will stink to high heaven....trust me!
*Keep an eye on your beads. When they melt to the point that you can no longer see any holes and the melted plastic is flat take it out of the oven. Times will vary.
*Turn a metal bowl with a flat bottom upside down on the counter.
*Flip the entire thing, foil and all, over the bowl and press the bottom flat against the bottom of the bowl. Don't forget this step or your bowl won't sit flat.
*Gentally form the sides of your melted plastic into a bowl-like shape.
*Allow to cool and then pop it off the bowl and peel the foil off.
*Admire your new bowl!

I was off to save the world....until I was distracted by something shiny.
