How in the world do you do that?  I know how to make record bowls but can't quite wrap my head around how to do this.  I have a ton of mardi gras beads and would like to try this

I can't wait to see what you come up with!  Here's the basic idea (look at my pictures in the second post, specifically)... http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=100703.0

I used the same process for this one, but now I use a huge cake pan instead of a pizza pan (to get more depth in the shade).

Sweets you are a melting machine! This is awesome. I love the flow and the colour of the necklaces, they look very "Under the Sea"
