What was your source for this jewelry project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Ribbead - Self-Supporting Beaded Bead Link to website or photo smadarstreasure.blogspot.com/2012/01/welcome-2012-with-free-pattern.html Who is this project for? Unisex What are you most proud of? Besides of being self-supported, this design is variable - you can make the beaded bead small (and still have a large hole for stringing) or large, short or long; you can use it as a spacer bead or as a focal and, with the right colors and finishes, you can combine it in men's jewelry. Also, you have many options for embellishing this bead. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Keeping the thread tension high when working on the base is essential for a stable, self-supporting result. I highly recommend using Fireline in this project.
