I have finally mastered the beaded sphere! And this is what I made it into, a cell phone charm!

Cool! If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the cellphone finding thing? (sorry, don't know what it's called). I've been looking everywhere for those.

I took the above pattern, but I made it with crystals.  This tutorial is extremely confusing at first, and it took me forever to get really good at making the sphere, but learning it is worth it because it turns out really pretty when your done. Takes some patience....

After I made the sphere, I put a headpin through it so I could connect it to the silver and blue crystal beads which connects to the cell phone key chain.

If you want pictures I can send them to you! Or more detailed instructions, just message me I would be happy to share Smiley

Very inspiring and despite being really confusing (the tutorial looks pretty intense), I do want to try this ...one ball can't be that hard! Smiley

Thanks for sharing.
