A rotator or a giant 3d cuff maybe? rainbowsmileblush

Random cuffs are always a good idea. You could make a mini rotator and use the shaped beads for the single in the rotator. Btw I love the biggie perler beads but can’t find them in stores where did you get themmm

perhaps you could group them by color and then follow a pattern, so you end up with a variegated sort of look, that might be pretty cool. Or you could make gradients, things like that.
