How to make a Rabbit with Beads

The rabbit is composed of two beaded balls. So please be familiar with how to make beaded ball first. I used 3mm firepolish beads for making the rabbit head, ears, body, hands and feet. Eyes and nose are made with 3 mm bicone plastic beads. You will need about 40cm fishing line (or nylon thread) for each beaded ball so that you have enough thread left for the ears, eyes, nose, hands and feet plus restringing the whole figure.

How to Make an Ornate Beaded Bead

This beaded bead follows similar technique as the crystal ball. Most people use 3 or 4 mm Czech fire polished beads or swarovski crystal beads + seed beads to make this ball. Since I don't have any fire polished or crystal beads at hand, I used hexagon seed beads that are about 3 x 4 mm and size 11 seed beads. I ended up flattening one side of the ball and beaded a ring band to the sides to make it a ring.
