Beaded Balls – day 57

Posted on Feb 26, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 5 comments

I have been making a lot of stuff lately using the tiny paper beads.  I remember making rosary beads in high school by beading around a big hole bead with seed beads.  This is kind of the same technique except I am using paper beads around a painted wood bead.


I love how this came out, they look chunky but at the same time so feminine, don’t you think?


I used thin fishing line to string the beads and sew it around the wood bead.  I wanted to make a necklace but did not have enough of the wooden bead.


It is a beautiful day today despite the threat of possible torrent, more beautiful because Kayla and I are going to a gem fair today in Costa Mesa, yay!!!!  Whatever great finds we bring with us I will be sharing with my readers, so stay tuned for a giveaway 🙂


  1. please tell me where I can find instructions for…How do I make round beads? Thanks so much you all are so gifted.

  2. I love the technique, and the beads go together so well. Great job!

  3. Wow that is so beautiful!

  4. I’ve never seen this kind of technique before. I really like how this turned out. I hope you had fun at the gem fair.

  5. I love the look that the chunky bracelet gives! it is especially nice colors… I love the contrast with the bright turquoise! I’ll probably make one for me …
