Use Daisy Spacer Beads but Not as Spacers!

By on Saturday, September 15, 2012 1 Comments

Do you try and use your beading supplies in different ways?  Donna of This Year's Dozen does.  Her earring tutorial makes use of daisy spacers or metal rondelles in a totally different way!


Several of them are grouped together so they look like one large bead! She also used them as regular spacers.

Some years ago, a beginner beader at one of ours beading workshop did the same thing only by accident!  My copper spacers were bought in bulk and came strung on a piece of wire. Lynda hadn't realized they were all individual beads so she used them as a group. Doesn't this idea make for a great new look?

You're AWESOME! Thanks for the comment and feedback. You do make a difference on my blog!

  1. I actually think these wonderful little beads look prettier when they're grouped together. Their decorative edges seem to "click" together and forms a lovely texture that just one daisy spacer alone cannot accomplish.
    I've used daisy spacers grouped into small clusters between beads in a bracelet or necklace but find Donna's use of them in her earrings very clever and attractive.
