Beads In Orbit

Posted on Sep 30, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 9 comments

This type of design is very simple way to display both the paper beads and the exposed soft flex beading wire.  The paper beads almost look like the different planets in orbit with the colorful swirls of paper beads around each bead.  This particular design is the perfect example of how to best use different size paper beads, mostly round and olive shaped beads.


I love using the magnetic closure, easy on easy off!  The beads are movable but you can also glue it in place if you prefer that it stays put.  Like the solar system they should be free to move around, don’t you think?  🙂


Hmmm… this would look pretty in a three strand necklace, what do you think?


Another extraordinary day!


  1. I watched the tutorial- where do you get the crimp beads?

    • Hi Ashley,

      You can find them at bead shops or Michael’s. I will be including the crimp bead and the beading wire should we decide to make this design. Janice

  2. This bracelt really reminds me on the solar system, i like it 🙂

  3. I think this would be great to do for the paper bead trade, very simple and pretty, too.

  4. Simple, yet pretty…love it!

  5. I really like this too.I also like that the only accent is the wire and the magnetic closure. Very simple and beautiful.

  6. I like you can use different size beads with this bracelet. I would like to do this one for the bead swap too!

  7. I Love It! I think it would look great in a 3 strand necklace!

  8. I really love this bracelet ! I think I should do one like this with the beads from the swap !
