About This Class

Create this interstellar beaded bead component using leftover beads in your stash! Create many or only a few to put together a stunning necklace, or keep it simple with a single pendant or earrings. These are super fast to bead together and make fantastic gifts. Once you have made a few, you will whip these together in no time! Advance your beadweaving skills to create one in every color combination!

I personally have made them using bicones, rounds, and pearls. Play with colors and create your own personal rainbow while learning basic beading techniques.
