Those are super-gorgeous and I love the colour of them.

Question. What did you string the beads on to make the balls? First I tried nylon, but the knot at the end was so large it really detracted from the look. Did you use nylon then maybe cover the knot with one of the beads on either end? I also tried thin steel wire but it got all wonky and misshapen.

I used 6 lb test fishing line which is thin and leaves a tiny knot,so when you hide your ends it will be hidden.

OK, thanks. I probably just had nylon that was way too thick! I'll look into getting thinner line.
