I have a tendency to want to create symmetrical patterns with beads, but if I push myself a little, I find that I enjoy making "collage" pieces.
This does involve "making a mess" with your beads, but it is well worth it!
Just make a pile of beads and get a clasp on a wire for a necklace or bracelet and just start randomly stringing them.
I like to use some kind of tiny toho seed bead in between beads just to help set each of them off a little better.
Memory wire bracelets are the most fun because you can easily do more than one strand AND they are "one size fits all" which is wonderful for gift giving!!
I hope you are all having a great week! :)
