These beads should probably be called "lost and found'.
A while ago I was playing with different textures and inadvertently made a crescent bead. I thought: "Oh, cool bead! I shall figure out what do with it and then write a tutorial." Then I completely forgot about it, and only recently came across it in my studio. This time suddenly everything clicked in place and I immediately envisioned a project with this type of beads and metal filigree.
So, here is my new tutorial, and it is available both on polymertutorials.com and in my etsy shop.
Let me know what you think!
