Step 1: What you will need. . .
*A concept for what you want the piece to look like.
*A clean work station
*Assortment of filler beads
*images you would like to put on the beads
*Mod Podge sealer/glue
*Embossing fluid (I used inkssentials Glossy accents)
*A beading board
The following items are optional depending on whether or not you are making a necklace or a bracelet or depending on what style you choose.
*.5mm/.019" diameter stretchy jewelry cord (Pepperell crafts Stretch Magic) [used for bracelets]
*Nylon coated stainless steel Jewelry wire (tiger tail) [used for necklaces]
*A centerpiece (preferably flat)
*Flat beads (larger than fillers)
If you don't already have a collection of beads it may take some time to find them, but all of these products can be found at Michael's or Joann's reletively easy and inexpensively
Step 2: The beads. . .
Next you will need the images you want to adhere to the beads. This could be a family photo, a quirky message or anything you want. I used images that matched my project proposal, which is a collection of creation and origin myths from many different cultures. The important thing is that you size the image to match the bead. They don't have to be sized uniformly but doing so will give you a more professional look.
