i've been making more kato inspired squiggle beads Grin  instead of using one sheet of colour between the strips of the skinner blend i stacked dark pink between two sheets of white (i thought red would look too harsh in this blend)
im really pleased with how well the clasps worked. i drilled holes into the beads gluing  the cord. i left one side unglued so the cord slides through allowing you to enlarge and then securely close the clasp.

this one is my favourite Smiley



as always comments or advice are more than welcome Smiley

Well I think they are absolutely gorgeous!!! Hey Claire, have you done a pod bead yet? That's something I want to try when I ahve time....I thought from the first photo they might have been pods. But I love the squiggle beads! They are just about too hard to resist trying they are so cool.

I'm not sure if there may be another for it...it's where they make a bead, make a mold of the bead, and use the mold to create a hollow bead, so I guess they're hollow beads lol

I love squiggle beads! Although I have never tried to make one...I really like the grouping of the top necklace but love the spirals in the bottom one Smiley
