Thanks for sharing this. I think these are really cool looking!

I got to work on a minor for a couple hours this past Saturday and this is one of the techniques I was excited to try. I just picked the beads up today and will take pictures tomorrow.

Mine aren't nearly as nice as the ones you all have shown but they're the best ones I've made so far.

these are beautiful! I tried... the clear doesn't go over the sides like I'd like it too. I must be impaired with this technique. I've tried putting a LOT of clear on like this tutorial says, but maybe it's not enough even yet.

I must agree with the tutorial. I tried for like 5 years to do these encased triangles, and they always turned out like doodie LOL. SO, A HUGE THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!

I can do an encased triangle just OK, but when I try to get the triangles of two solid colors, my triangles look more circular with rounded ends..any tips???
Im starting with a small black spacer..adding four white dots on the left and right shoulders of the beads, not melting in completly and encasing.

First 3 steps, plus heavy encasing will make regular triangle beads. The only aspect that I would do differently is that I'd make the dots bigger so that they'd stretch from hole to hole after encasing.

Wow, great beads everyone! I've put in a couple more months of PPP since my last dismal attempt, and I'm happier with this one.

Thanks for a super tut!
