She will be teaching a beaded bead designed by Kassie Inman from the Beading Butterfly in the next few months. So we had a trial run Friday night. These are made with the new ‘peanut’ beads and everyone had a great time – and they each finished a couple of beads.

…my hoard of peanuts. I just love looking at them in their little containers but I guess it’s about time I made something with them instead of admiring my hoard. …I started making a ton of these ropes. They work up quick and easy… I’ve only pictured two colors…but trust me I’ve made many colors in long, short, doubled….etc…they are addicting!

I have to admit, though, that as excited as I was to get my hands on a bunch of these cool new shapes of glass beads, I had absolutely no idea how to use them in my beaded jewelry designs. But after I added a nice collection of Czech farfalle beads to my stash last summer, I decided that the best way to learn how to use these beads was to, well, just use them!

Have you played around with using peanut seed beads in your designs? They’re great! I picked up about ten colors…at the Bead and Button Show this year. I’ve been adding them as spacers and small accents to several projects, but haven’t experimented with making them center stage before now.

I love these beads, but I never feel like I know just what to do with them! So I thought it would be fun to do a little experiment with three of my favorite bead-weaving stitches: right-angle weave, peyote stitch, and herringbone stitch. I wanted to see what kind of texture and dimension using a shaped seed bead like a farfalle bead would give to my beadwork.
