Friendly Plastic Beads

I had a FP day yesterday which was a bonus as I was saving it until Monday.  I was going to Maz's to show her some of the techniques I picked up from Liz, but she is now busy.

I picked up a tubeads kit from Liz last weekend, you can buy them direct from her on line shop (here).  This is a must have kit to assist with bead making.  The above bead is made using the smaller of the silicone tubing and I added some wooden beads.

This was made the same way except I didn't put any peel off's on the FP.  I made one bead shaped and the other one straight.  I cut the straight one into two and added a wooden bead between the two pieces.

Again this one was made in the same way but the larger of the silicone tubing was used.  Peel offs were used and the FP started of stripy.

This is a large green bead with peels offs.

This is just to show you the difference in width between the two beads, you can make them as long as you want.

And finally, these are the ends of the beads, this time finished off.
