I was browsing Etsy for this month’s Art Bead Palette post and my eye caught the most unusual looking beads from Carol Ann’s shop, BombPop. The textures (and colors, naturally) grabbed me, and the more I looked at them, the more curious I became. These were fascinating!
Turns out, they’re made from a synthetic fabric called Tyvek, and the way Carol Ann has created them, they look like either smooth barrels or an explosion of flower petals. Aren’t they fabulous?
You can see more Tyvek beads here, and all of Carol Ann’s shop here.

I am so glad to see you have noticed Carol Ann's Tyvek Beads. I think they are some of the coolest new technique beads I've seen in a long time. The first necklace and earring set I made with them just sold today, so it's great to see that they are appealing to jewelry buyers, as well. Thanks for the always great info and finds.
