Kandi but with seed beads? Isn’t it the same?

I wanna get seed beads to make smaller charms but I’m stuck on if I should learn new methods or just keep using all the methods I use for pony beads. Like for charms, is it the same thing? Idk if this makes sense

just use a really thin string and it should work, there may be some metal string ar your local craft store but that tends to make funky shapes so be careful or something idk it been a while since i worked with seed beads

if you get the teeny seed beads, i recommend getting a metal wire "string" because it holds its shape easiest

The only problem you may run into with using seed beads specifically is since you're working so small, its super hard for anything to stay in its shape, and its difficult to keep the tension of ur string consistent without pulling so tight you mess up the project. All of this comes from personal experience, and i've used a wide variety of beads. But it may be different for u!! i would try to have seed beads that are on the larger side but are still small enough that you like what you make tongue

You can make charms, rings, lizards (ladders stitch charms), n even panels

Things like jewlery (rings n necklaces excluded) can't really be made unless you enlarge the pattern you want but it would be extremely difficult
