Know How to Bauble?

After yesterday's post on the 12 bead bauble, I wanted to share a couple other options for the bauble.

I think it's quite magical and it doesn't hurt that I learned it from a fellow beader on a bead cruise six or seven years ago...

I have visions of sitting in the lounge, looking out the window at the ocean with the sun shining in and a bunch of beaders sitting around with all their bags, cases and beads.

It was just a little bit of heaven!

If you want my home spun instruction sheet, I'll email it to you, just let me know. One day I'll really have to share a video of the magic.

You can pretty much use any seed bead, bicone or round in any size.

Once you get your bauble made, you can slide a chain through it like I did with yesterday's project, or you can use it as a pendant, earring or lanyard dangles or a bracelet focal.

I love the simplicity of the bracelet above which is just one strand of memory wire. Easy, dainty and sweet!
