Knitting and crocheting with beads has become very popular. This bead has a hole large enough to work beautifully with yarns and other thick stringing materials. This special large size glass bead is difficult to make. The Czech glass makers perfected the process to make this beautiful bead.
Manufactured by the same company that created the SuperDuo!

Inspired by the natural curves of the ginkgo leaf, the Ginkgo Leaf Bead provides an elegant shape for your beaded designs. The Ginkgo has two parallel holes that make the beads fit together perfectly side by side and also pairs well with other bead shapes.
We can’t wait to see what designers create with it and look forward to seeing the Ginkgo Leaf bead being incorporated with other beads.
This is the first example of many! We’ll have a step by step to share with you in a day or two.
This whimsical and fruity bracelet was achieved by adding polymer clay fruit slices to carrier beads.
Carrier beads have been trending in the beading world for some time as designers continue to showcase them covered in seed beads.
This necklace is a perfect example of what you can do with the beads. (see link to purchase the pattern by clicking above image)
I really like the beads as they are. I have been referring to them as “chicklets” a type of gum I like. I decided to slice some polymer clay resin canes really thin so I could decorate a few of the beads.
I glued my slices to one side of 9 beads. A day or two later I decided to just fill in a few of the open areas with crystals.
My bracelet now has some plain carrier beads and some fruity designs. I think it is always nice to personalize a design with a few unusual components.
