Beadangel I have a question . do you know HOW they get the little box to hold it's shape? I pulled tight on EVERY step. I'm making another one with filament maybe that will help. Let me know ok? Elaine

I used nylon strings, just the right width, size 11/0 beads with 0.25mm nylon strings or you can use some felt or cotton to stuff it inside just like my pumpkin charms.

Hope this helps!

Beadangel I need your help! I'm trying to make a snowman and well i'm getting confused with which bead to go back through and well i was thinking i could make a bunch of the little circles and joining them together. i've been trying for 2 days and i just can't figure it out :help::cursing: Elaine

You can't make beads circles and join them!
try thinking this way:
Always use the same side of the thread where you add new beads to pass through the next adjoining old bead.
Always work in one direction e.g. in the tutorial I worked in clockwise direction.

If you still have problems, let me know which step you are stuck at.

If you still think you cannot get the idea of the multiple beads of right angle weave, try these projects first:
Crystal Snowflake earring: http://beadjewelrymaking.com/Kid_Art_Project/Kid_art_bead_project/august2006_bead_project.html
Crystal Snowflake pendant:

If you can manage these two, there should be no problem with the snowman.

Happy Beading!
