Hey beautiful! In today’s beading tutorial I will show you how to make the large version of the Chameleon Beaded Bead series, and use it in the form of a tassel topper for a necklace (or decor!). This design incorporates two hole bead shapes; Irisduo, Lentil, and Mobyduo, plus 11/0 and 15/0 seed beads. Please see below for the full list of materials, and links to places you may purchase them.

Chameleon Beaded Bead Sizes
If you’d like to make a slightly smaller, more elongated version of the Chameleon Beaded Bead, simply follow the same steps in the tutorial, but reduce the Irisduo beads to two, and the other bead quantities accordingly.
Also shown in this image is the smallest version, which does not include any two-hole lentil beads. I am planning to come back with a tutorial video that is specific to that design in the near future. Also see the latest finished jewelry update video to check out all three bead sizes in finished necklaces.
Chameleon Beaded Bead Inspiration
Thanks to a wonderful viewer, Michelle, who asked me to create and share a beaded bead pattern. This particular design uses shapes that are more complex, but I hope to be able to share other beaded bead tutorials in the future, which incorporate simpler single-hole shapes, as well.
