If youve seen these first four before, its because I posted in the beginning of May over in the 50 projects in 2010 thread. Since Ive been making more I decided to show them all off Smiley I didnt have the coiler thingy so I went with the beaded method.
Normalish ones

Experimental ones

Now trying again to make sure the experimental ones werent just giant flukes

Annnd some more!

Some of the colors are a bit off in the pictures but thats ok. At first I was a bit bummed out that I had to use beads but now I dont think I would use a coiler even if I had one Smiley And I can proudly say all of these except one I think were made while watching my X-Files-athon!
If anyone is interested I found out the methods from a question here on Craftster! Here is the link : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302023.0

They are really cool as is, but you can do cool things with the beads as well.  The possibilities are endless!

These are really superb.  I have a pair of teardrop shaped ones I got at target and I've been trying to think of ways to reproduce them.  I would have never thought of using beads! Awesome!

I had no idea you could do this with beads instead of coils. Holy Jeebz you've inspired madness!

Thanks guys Cheesy I didnt know you make them with beads either until it was posted in the thread that I linked. Beads do seem to have so many more possiblities! Different colors, shapes, sizes, anything! Plus its an awesome way to use up beads that I never use Smiley
