One through five are chenille stitch with Duo caps, six is a Duo barrel bead.  The barrel bead has a 8mm bead in the center to help hold the shape.  The chenille beads are stiff and don’t need support.

Chenille Beaded Beads I haven’t done anything with them – the fingers are still very uncooperative.  I plan to turn 3 & 4 into earrings.  I don’t know where I’m going with 5 yet.

The numbers are actually notes to myself so I wouldn’t forget what order I made them, but they came in handy for explaining. :)
