Now that you are starting to think about Christmas presents, here is a quick idea. Beaded beads are very fast and don’t have to cost a lot. Just pick one, make a bunch of them, and use them for pendants and/or earrings.

Recently I saw an amazing beaded bead on BeadsForBrains365. Mandy gave the web link http://manogyongyei.blogspot.com/2009/01/sultan-bogy.html where she had found the pattern, only the instructions were a little sketchy and also in Hungarian. I sat down and tried to walk my way through the sketches. After much trial and error this is what I came up with.

During the few months that I did attempt to create something with them, I became obsessed with beaded beads, and spent many a happy hour tying myself up in knots. I did manage to create one design for a simple bead though, so I thought I’d share it with you today. They’re really simple and quick to make up, but I’ve never written a pattern before, so I hope I haven’t over complicated it and you can follow along…

This tutorial uses four different sizes of beads and what is basically a circular peyote stitch (or a netted stitch, if you prefer). A quick run down of your supplies in relation to a 4mm round as the largest in the bead: 4 4mm round spacer beads, 8 3mm spacer beads (in this a size 8/0 seed bead), 4 size 10/0 or 11/0 seed beads, and some size 11/0 seed beads all in complementary colors (plus the requisite needle, thread, and beeswax).

I made three bead balls and thread them together with rose quartz and Chinese rondelle crystals. These bead balls require lot of practice. It seems difficult at first but when you get use to it, it’s quite easy. Don’t give up if you can’t make it in the first try.

But what about transforming the beads that we already have? Today we’re going to look at a simple technique that turns an ordinary macramé bead into a seed bead wonder.
