Beaded Beads

The flipping things are driving me mad. They're fun to make and now I'm obessing. They are three sizes of beads. 8/0 (small) 11/0 (smaller) 15/0 (poppy seeds) You start with the biggest and add rows of smaller ones, and end up with a cone. Then you flip it over, and do the same thing on the other side. Push the coney ends in and TA DAH. You've got a beaded bead. I've been told they make cool focal beads, or you can use them anywhere you'd use regular beads. Right now, I'm just making them. If you order any piece of maille, I'll give you one free. For the love of the bead, you see.
