* fuse beads jewelry

Posted on November 17th, 2009 by maitreya. Filed under Jewelry.


Eddy and Edwina posted this cool work-in-progress shot of a necklace she made from some pretty colored beads.  In the comments she reveals they are actually those plastic fuse beads you make designs out of and melt together.  Genius.  A bit o’ Googling also turned up a fuse bead bracelet tutorial by nkitkat.

It just so happens that I have a bunch of these left over from a couple of years ago.

Bracelets on waxed twine threaded back and forth, linked with a loop of elastic so they go over the wrist

I think they kind of evoke the colorful glass beads in Ronni Kappos‘s jewelry, which I love (more here).

    I was just doing this craft with my daughters yesterday afternoon and thinking, “There must be something more we can do with these.” My bet is there are also possibilities that involve fusing these (maybe with a heat gun?) in alternative shapes or bundles. They are very cool, that’s for sure.
