Struggling to hunt down that illusive perfect bead? In Mollie Makes 65 we show you a nifty way to design and make your own gems! Go for a fun rainbow palette or keep things subtle with muted and pastel shades. To really mix things up, add contrasting pendants and other beads for an interesting take on your standard ‘beads on a string’ accessory. We like it chunky! The bigger the bead, the better.
