My aunt has been "bothering" me the last three years asking me to make her more beads stuff to put her plants on and things. So I finally did it, lol  Grin

Full shot of everything, two are made by my mom, those are not shown zoomed in.

A ducky!

3 things she can put her teaglasses on.

A little heart with more hearts and things.

Your creations are beautiful! are those the beads that you iron over to melt? I didn't think they made those anymore, I loved those when I was little.

Yes the iron-over-beads (Hama). I think they still sell them over here in Holland but only those big boxes with turtorials and stuff (I could be wrong though).

I still have over 15.000 beads laying around from my childhood and I just decited to make my aunt happy and being very crafty. Yeah I love the duck too, she'd better give it a really nice spot in her home or I'll keep it.  Grin

That duck's quacktastic!

...I'm sorry, I just couldn't help myself. Blame it on a childhood full of puns and "dad" jokes  Wink

I love the bright fluro ones as well, they're fantastic! I'm a sucker for bright colours

The hama beads are really big at the moment I've found since Moose have brought them out again as bindiz I think they're called, but they're so expensive. I'm really wanting to work with them and make a bit of jewelry, if I can find some cheap enough.

That duck is just awesome!  I've walked past these beads in the craft shop, not realising that they stuck together with an iron.  I'll have to pick some up and get my eight year old creating with me.  Any more ideas for practical uses for finished products?
