"Be Dazzled" is my second original beaded kaleidocycle design. The beaded kaleidocycle is worked in Peyote stitch using size 11/0 Delica beads. It is made using six beaded triangles of each of my four original designs, totaling 24 triangles. The finished kaleidocycle measures 2 ¾” across. The method for joining the triangles is easy and creates smooth working beaded hinges. I have patterns for three different kaleidocycles in my Etsy store. I like creating beaded toys. They are fun to make and to play with.
 See my youtube video for a demonstration of "Be dazzled" kaleidocycle.

"Four Seasons" is my third original beaded kaleidocycle. For this project, I designed miniature scenes depicting the four seasons. This kaleidocycle uses a large pallet of Delica colors. It reminds me of a snow globe.
