Beaded Dodecahedron Tutorial


Weave a ball of beads to hang from earrings or act as a “beaded bead” for stringing. This technique does not require threading a needle, and you can choose from lots of different types/shapes of beads for different looks. Different ingredients yield different sized dodecahedrons; in the first photo I used little 2mm rounds for ~1/2″ ball, and in the second photo I used 6mm rounds for ~1″ ball. They can be made from Swarovski crystals, Czech glass, pearls, and lots of other uniformly-sized beads.
