Using Round Beads
Round beads are an essential in every beaders kit and are fabulous in necklaces, bracelets and so much more! Use round beads alone in your design, either using the same bead throughout the design, or mixing it up with various sizes and materials; they also look fantastic if they're graduated throughout your design. They also shine as the focus of your design; why not surrounding a focal bead with other shapes for some real interest. They also make perfect little spacer beads in between other beads.
