Utterly useless pretty things!  Also my first dimensional bead work (I've done embroidery & strung things before, but no 3D forms)


Same pattern in 3 sizes: 11s, 8s, & 6s.

Ugh, it's like Thanos, ok?  the long E is the feminine ending.  (Also, I prefer *not* to destroy the universe when possible.)

They do +5 damage to bead golems!

Is it hard to get all the facets to lie flush with one another?

Not really-- as long as your beads aren't wildly different sizes, they pretty much take care of themselves. (Yay for Platonic solids!)  I did the first one without the inner ring to each face and it was a bit too squishy, but with two rows of beads they work well.  Each face shares sides with the ones next to it, so while you add new corner beads (the ones I did as contrasting colors) for each face, there's a 3-bead ridge in common between any two adjacent faces.

Does that make sense?  I can do a diagram or tutorial if anyone's interested.

I wouldn't say that they are completely useless though because pretty things always come in handy around the house (well, mine at least). You could use the bigger piece as a paperweight whereas the lighter one could be a keychain if you attach a string to it. If you have more, tiny pieces could also be used as a pendant for your necklaces. The possibilities are endless when you have pretty little things lying around the place!
