Big, colorful beads. Cartoon character 'representations' are always popular (remember copyright issues).

Here's a few I finished. The gator is a Sharon Peters tute from the Oct 2015 Soda Lime Times issue. Thank you so much for the tute, Sharon.! They are a blast to make! Again, the adorable elephant is a tute from Heather Sellers (thanks, Heather!) and is super easy. I added little toes to mine.

Gotta love SLT for all the tutes. The colorful bead is from issue April 2015, written by Jasmine French (thanks, Jasmine!) and also easy and the color combinations are endless.

Tweety bird, chicken and the sugar skulls are mine. No tute, but copy to your hearts desire for BOC. I apologize for the out of focus pic. I took this with my tablet and there is no anti shake on it, which I need. Hope this helps get your creativity going!

Uhh...duh...I just noticed this was an old request! Oh well, I'll leave it here for someone to see anyway!

I think those are really wonderful Deb! Love love love the croc beads!!!

We're always looking for bright and figural/cartoon pieces, like Robert mentioned. I took in all the Dream Bead requests this year and there were a lot of rainbows, hearts, princess requests. There were also a lot of trademarked, familiar designs like Superman logo, Batman, etc, but we have to be careful about making those in mass.....just a one or two is ok for the kids per their requests, but the take away on that was that the kids really liked super heroes in general!

Thanks Renee. I love how generous artists are with their knowledge. I've learned so much through the tutorials on SLT. The first time I looked at a croc I had made I broke out laughing. It may be my favorite BOC bead yet.

Oooh, I think a rainbow on a cloud would be cute. Gotta play with that.
