|Art Bead by Zeborah Loray|
Angel hair fiber is also known as fantasy fiber or Angelina fiber, popular with crafters for all sorts of projects. It comes in a variety of shimmering colors. The fiber can be cut, woven, glued or heat bonded.
Zeborah Loray's wonderful fantasy bead tutorial shows how an unique art bead can be created. She starts with a paper bead and embellishes it with embossing enamels, fantasy film and fibers.
There is room for all sorts of creative additions to make the beads your own. The result is worth the time. As she says, "Up close, you can see whole galaxies inside these beautiful beads."
The tutorial that Lacey originally wanted turned out out to be the Angelina Beads tutorial by Kristal Wick on Beading Daily. You will have to login/sign up with BD (free) to get the pdf download. This how-to does not start with a paper bead like the tutorial above. The bead is formed by rolling up fabric made from the angel hair fiber.
