Hi!
I originaly wrote this tutorial for the Sampler's website, but I thought some people here might be interested as well.
It's picture heavy though, so sorry for the folks on dial-up  Undecided

Thank you so much for the tutorial! I saw these beads on a purse one time and I thought they were so neat.

Those are so cool! Nice work.

Apart from the tute being awsome the beads are extremely nice looking and I have to try to make them with my daughter.

Wow.

We're in awe here.

Wow!

Lise, your felt and your website are beautiful. I think you're very generous to post a tutorial for your beads, which I fell in love with at first sight!
Merci, t'es chouette!

Thank you all!
A great source for wool roving is www.outbackfibers.com They have the best colors IMO.
olenka, for the green bracelet, the beads are the same, except when I roll them between my palms, I don't try to make a perfectly round bead, so they come out a bit uneven, but that's how I like them
rabid.dustbunny , thanks for the comments on my website!  Are you a fellow Frenchie, or just good at the language?

Lise, I'm an honorary frenchie. My ex is french and my kids were born in Nantes and Paris (one each.) We lived in Nantes for 8 years. I'll be going back when my daughter graduates high school. I miss it terribly!
By the way, we had an excellent artisanal yarn shop in Nantes where you could buy this sort of wool. If I can remember the name of it I'll pass it on.
