im form denmark and here (and in sweden and norway) they are called klejner, pronounced 'clay-nar' or something along those lines anyway:)

We make them every year for xmas (or my grandma does), but with the addition of magarine/butter and using the whole egg, but we also have an additional ingredient of ammonium bicarbonate which makes them extra light!

thank you so much for all the lovely words - i feel like im still a beginner at this!

My bf didnt like the one of us much, he havent seen the other, but nice to hear some people do!

I know that Nabbi sells their beads in the states as well and i would think it would be the same brand name, but i dont know where to look - maybe michaels?

I some of mine in a european chain called 'panduro' and some in small local toystores!

Thanks guys!

They are both gifts, one for my boyfriend for our 3 year anniversary and the other for x-mas for my cousin!

Do you really think i could make these to order and sell them? and approx how much do you think people would pay?

Thanks for all the kind words!
They are both 6x2 of the square pegboards, and mine are 29 by 29 pegs (normal ones are 30, i don't know why these are only 29!)
I used nabbi pearls, just cause they are cheaper here than the hama brand and come in more colors!
I have about 30 different colors and tend to use about 25-28 different colors pr photo, the many colors are what gives the detail and make it look more like a real portrait:)

I have some software that i found free online for 'pearlifying' but it really sucked, you just have to play around with it in photoshop or gimp or what ever you use to get the colors right, the brightness/contrast function is key as you need a much higher contrast than in normal photos for it to look right!
Then choose no of colors, pixelate, and print!

Hi! So this is my first time showing anything i've made here on craftster, so be gentle:)

It's two portraits made in Nabbi beads (like the ones you put on a peg board and iron, only these cant be ironed but are stuck together with double sided tape at the end)

I was looking at the beautiful twilight crossstitch that is currently featured on the frontpage and really wanted to make a huge portrait - but i know i don't have the skill nor the patience for that, but started to play around with making patterns for crossstitching the portraits i wanted anyway!
Then when looking at the pattern of all these little different colored squares I thought it looked like the prestamped/colored pegboards you can by for kids - so why not change the medium to something more suitable for me:D
The results:

My Boyfriend and me

My cousin and her daughter
