Let's make bead balls into accessory parts.

Let's make bead balls into accessory parts.

Hello. I'm cochonnet. Recently I've been into bead balls. Only easy patterns using 12 beads at this stage though... They're cute when used as earrings parts.

Do you like bead balls?
I've been into it since making it once.
A single pearl bead gives great impressions, but bead balls suit both pretty and cute earrings.

Now, for those who use bead balls as earring parts, what do you do about the joint?
I play safe with round jump rings.
But I can't quite get this round jump ring through once the bead balls are made.
Trying to forcefully get it through, the string goes snap, and the pearls disperse.........
Is the string too tight? No no, the shape will come apart if I don't make it tight...

So I tried this out.

First, prepare 12 of 3mm pearl beads, monofilaments, and 2 round jump rings.
This time, I'm using 2 round jump rings, imagining of when I make beads parts using an eye pin.
Ofcourse, when imagining using a head pin, I only use 1 round jump ring.
Make sure the round jump ring is closed properly.

Go through the usual process of making a bead ball.
Usually the string is threaded through all neighbouring beads to bring the shape together as well as strengthen the piece, but stop it just before that step.

Here, pass the round jump ring through one end of the string.

In the same way as threading the 12 beads, thread each ends of the string through the neighbouring beads (left and right), and cross them over in the next beads (the center one).
Repeat this and connect all the neighbouring beads. Thread through the second round jump ring opposite to where the first one was threaded through.
Tie the monofilaments once or twice, and it's finished. It is completed as accessory parts.
In case of attaching only 1 round jump ring, thread it through just before tying the string.
There's been no more stress over trying to get the round jump ring through, since starting this method.

Just as a side note: Without doing anything, cheap beads cannot have several strings through them, because the holes are not great.
I would recommend making the holes properly in advance, using tools such as awls.
