Black and White Set – Paper Bead Idea # 3

Posted on Jun 28, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 7 comments

This black and white earrings and ring set is made of the zentangle paper beads from this post.  It is sometimes hard to find black and white jewelry to go with your black and white outfit.  I have solved that problem and actually wore this set to a an afternoon gathering with family and friends.  Paper beads jewelry can certainly be dressy if you want it to be, and can hold up to real jewelry…

So here I am wearing it 🙂

It was beautiful outside yesterday

The chandelier earrings can be worn casual since they’re paper beads and I used earring findings by black lace in one of my trips to Michaels, you can see more here.

Are you proud enough to  wear your paper beads jewelry?  Do you want to share it here?

This black and white version of the sea anemone ring was wire wrapped to this two loop finding.  I will be putting ring findings to the kits I am sending out to the Paper Bead Trade participants 🙂

    • Hi Karen,

      That was my first attempt at zentangles, just wanted to see how it will look like rolled into paper beads. I’m sure you will do a better job than me, we would love to see your paper beads? Thank you for stopping by and saying hello.

  4. It’s been a year since I googled Paper beads and look what I found. I thought I was the only one that loved them. There is something so satisfying about working with paper. You have some lovely creations and I plan to check in often. Would also like to participate in the swap, but don’t know how to post pictures online.
