A Little Bead Family

I love buying the same beads in a variety of sizes. They are like happy little families that always look so adorable worked into projects together. Even though they are identical in design, the size still adds dimension. If you like working with monochromatic designs, adding variations in size is like having an extra little trick up your sleeve.

I have enough of these for a nice multi-strand bracelet and was thinking of using black softflex. I'd like to make clumps of 3 beads by stringing each of the 3 beads on its own strand and then one large black faceted bead over all the strands to make the family grouping stand out.

Like most designs, it sounds good in my head, so I'm going for it! Have a great evening!
