Beads are tiny pieces of different materials that have been used since ancient times for making jewelry or accessories such as bracelets, necklaces, talismans and charms. They are usually spherical, but we can also find them cylindrical, cubical, and almost in any shape we can imagine. Materials are also varied, from wood to fine crystal, metal, plastic, rubber or even paper.
There is a world of creations with beads, from simple necklaces to complex 3D figures. Here I show a collection of figures I made during some holidays, after I learned how to make the classical bead crocodiles:
It is hard to stop once you start making figures! I prefer to work with copper thread instead of nylon, since it is more malleable and easier to work with.
