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 : https://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!

Creating something from nothing is the most theraputic thing in this world for my soul.
It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

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
