As Seen In Beading Magazine

Posted on May 17, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | Comments Off on As Seen In Beading Magazine

One great source for inspiration and ideas is looking through beading magazines and there are several that offer how-to’s and tutorials.  I love collecting them and going through them once in a while.  I found an old article from Bead Style Magazine, their September 2003 issue on Eastern Influence Earrings.  While these are great pair of earrings I wanted to see them in paper beads.
