Today I would like to share with you a beaded jellyfish that I made. What was most amazing was that I actually had the beads here to make it. I have zillions of beads but when it comes to making a project, I often don’t have the right size or color. I did have to improvise a bit on the very top of the jellyfish because my opening was a bit too big, but I just kept repeating and reducing the pattern until the opening was big enough for the headpin.
This jelly fish was >made using glass pearls I had actually gotten at Michael’s during one of their big sales. I liked them because they were a rainbow or maybe AB glazed white pearls. There were four strands on one hang tag. I bought it because I liked the fact that I got four different size pearls to work with on one purchase, plus they were pretty. Yup, pretty really sells it for me!!!
The pattern listed pink pearls for the smaller ones but I didn’t have any pink. But I did have the correct size in cream, so that is what I used. I made what I had work because what I had was the right size. I am trying not to order more stuff I don’t need before I try using what I have and so far I’m doing pretty good. I will never use up my bead stash but I am sure trying to make what I have work with what I want to make.
You can get the pattern for this jellyfish here. I will have this necklace set up for sale in my webstore. I just wanted to make one, I didn’t know what I was going to do with it. So I decided to sell it and move on to another project I have already started. You can see it in my secure webstore here.
Thank you so much for having a look today,
