Beaded Ferris Wheel

I’ve been working on this project for the last week or so. This lovely pattern is by Threadabead and is part of their beaded fairground collection.

Beaded Ferris wheel

The baskets are just adorable and I think would make quite sweet earrings!

The wheel is designed to spin but when I popped the baskets on, they turned out to be too long. I’ll have to do some tinkering to make them a little shorter. Adding another bugel bead was not enough.

I had so much fun making this and despite the extra long baskets it still looks fab 🙂 Check out the spinning wheel on my Instagram!
