Show off fancy etched melon beads in these ball-shaped beaded beads! The Melon Ball beaded beads feature tactile etched melon round beads framed by two-hole triangle beads and Japanese seed beads. These hollow beaded beads are woven using the triangle weave technique, a variation on right angle weave (RAW), all using the geometry of an octahedron. The Melon Ball beaded bead can be strung through two different types of openings for two different looks. String a pair on head pins for easy earrings, or combine them with fancy glass beads such as antique cut beads for a tactile necklace.
