Handmade polymer clay beads area beautiful addition to your toolbox – whether you enjoy making jewelry, or creating adornments for bookmarks, scrapbook or what have you. I’ve been a fan of polymer clay for a long time and the array of colors it comes in will blow your mind!
It’s especially well made for combining and swirling together different patterns – no surprise that one of the most popular uses is for beads.
I remember seeing lots of different patterns for crafting millifiori beads from wrapping different layers of clay into a pattern to create striking colors. There’s other kinds of beads that are just as colorful and they are already hand-crafted, so you can get a jump start on something unique to wear , or decorate your home.
Take a look at the array of beautiful and bold bead assortments I have found that feature lots of dazzling patterns and color combinations. These first two sets here come in a vast array of colors to suit every mood.
The second set includes some nylon string and spacer beads which are a nice, neat way of breaking up your bead pattern and complementing it well. Regardless of which set you choose spacer beads in plain colors like silver, gold or black are a great way to make your bead strands more inter-connected, and minimize gaps between them.
In addition to basic spheres, add these floral shaped beads in between whatever you’re making and you’ll have a fashion statement in no time at all. These flower shapes come in every different color.
Different shapes like these cylinder/tube shaped beads below, look great interspersed between other shapes, like round or square.There’s no lack of pretty patterns here either; from floral to geometric, they look amazing!
When I first saw these round disc-shaped beads I had a first impression of one of those candy necklaces you may have seen – all these multitudes of dreamy colors made me think of “sweet tarts” or Necco wafers No joke – they really do look like them😃 . In addition to the multicolor option, you can also choose different colors that are more conservative, a la carte style.
I thought these bead sets were the prettiest – which ones did you like the most?
