Charming Experiments: Free Tutorial

Double dips are a good way to test out potential color combinations instead of taking the time to make a bead. Yet what do I do with those color experiments I don't end up offering to customers?

Make them into charms! Here's the tutorial I wrote last year for the double dip charms. Of course, the double dips can be cut with wire cutters and used as headpins but I like to see how many different things I can make with them. The charms are a particularly nice way to add accent color and use my color experiments.

If you don't know where to buy the double dips, they're available over on Cindy Gimbrone Beads. Enjoy!
