November 2007 Beaded 3-D Umbrella Charm Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month, I would like to feature the instruction on a beaded 3-D pearl umbrella charm made with rice pearls and Japanese glass seed beads.

Beaded 3-D umbrella Charm

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.
