I’d always considered hama beads (a.k.a perler beads) to be the most royally chintzy crafting good known to woman, man, dog, cat, alien, monster – pretty much anyone. Nostalgic, yes, but stylish? Never!
All that changed, though, when I chanced upon this editorial featuring the work of Shanghai-based designer Sabine Ducasse, whose immaculate hama bead creations ignited my DIY spirit and set me on a quest to create a wear-worthy necklace from these beads.
Check out our step-by-step hama bead necklace tutorial, and don’t miss out on the bit of bonus fun we included: a downloadable template of the necklace pictured above!
I am curious as how this looks on 😀
Took a while, but wish granted. Here you go, Mary: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8488/8189030308_afa687e7ed_b.jpg
I can’t say I’m a fan of this…
I’d love to see someone actually wearing this…
Took a while , but here’s a picture of the necklace being worn: http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8488/8189030308_afa687e7ed_b.jpg
Hope this helps!
@Mary and @Ang…will work on that once I get home from out of town! Expect a picture soon. 🙂
How did you do this without a pegboard? Were you just ridiculously careful?
Yes! Super careful. Might have to invest in a pegboard for next time though; it was pretty time consuming to use tweezers and fingers :).
great idea!! i was wondering though…can these beads be used set on their side so the holes dont show?
