Tutorial Note from Pat
Here I drew a curved vector line across my page and used a script to place the beads, then placed smaller beads by hand in between the larger ones. I then texturized and sculptured the line to make it like a string or cord.
Don't be afraid to experiment with sculptures, bevels, textures and colourization, you will be surprised what you can come up with!
Try using preset shapes or vector shapes and use your vector/tube paint script to place your beads, or place them by hand individually, on wire words for example.
