Having Fun with Fusing Beads (Hama/Perler/Magic)

Image

Sorting little mans craft box and found these (£6.99 at Sainsbury’s) – so thought I would have a play…. then inspiration struck, have been looking at ways to liven up my scaffold piercing and beads are used in jewellry – bingo! New adornment.

Next it was over to Pinterest to search for inspiration – if you search Hama Beads or Perla Beads there are lots of ideas to inspire you. Unfortunately the boards that came with the kit are only 15 x 15 and the designs I liked (and pinned) are too big.

So ‘Being Sharon Greenwood’ I decided to have a go at designing my own and this is what I came up with:  A Roller Derby Quad Skate.

Ta Dar – the finished project – not bad for a first attempt.

My Flamin Roller Derby Skate, the team I skate with is called Code Red and our branding is flames, and this is modelled on my own Riedell Dash skates with Poison wheels.
