I did it a little different than the ones that gave the the idea, I think
I took a pizza pan and arranged my beads
And "cooked" them at 375
When they were all flat and melty I let it cool for half an hour and then I put a metal mixing bowl open side down and I let it melt down the side and I like the way it waves

ooooh I want to make a lamp shade with those.  Do you have to use an old oven or something since it's melting plastic?

I just used my oven (I will never use those pans for anything else mind you), if your beads are just typical pony beads they don't smell toooooo horrible, the clear ones stink the least. I have always been too shy at to post and I am quite glad I did now! Cheesy

wow. so colourful! i think i may have seen a lampshade using a similar technique once, though i think it may have been glass of some kind.
