Made with oven-melted perler beads!  After I made some and saw how big the holes were, I got the idea to string them directly onto the chain, which I liked so much I started playing around with other designs on my handful of old, boring chain necklaces.

That came out great, so pretty and simple. I'll have to try this some time.

It's bad enough wasting time, without killing it.

Those came out pretty nicely. Did you have any out-gasing issues from the beads?

My kitchen smelled a little funny for five minutes or so after they were done baking, but I had the hood fan running and the windows open, and that pretty much took care of it.

I really love this idea, I haven't used those beads since high school! May have to go searching for my old stash  Grin

Oh this is so clever! I would not have thought of using the beads this way. Your necklace is so cute...as well as some of the others you've come up with! Also, good to know that you've got to ventilate the work area.  Wink
