Beaded Kumihimo – day 196

Posted on Aug 15, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

My last visit to jtv, I got the chance of meeting Anne Dilker, the Kamikaze of Kumhimo as she is aptly described by Kim the energetic host of jewel school. If you know me, I try to incorporate paper beads into everything.  I had fun making this Purple Pendant, but then I love anything in shades of purple:)


I think I did a tutorial about this from a home made kuhihimo disc.  I love the fact that you can bead the braid itself and it is a mindless task, something that you can do while watching tv or traveling.

Tres Matryoshkas Pin – day 195

Posted on Aug 14, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 4 comments

First of all I want to thank, Claire, Manou, Denise, Deb, Diane and Ann on the creative ideas on what to do with the Matryoshka paper bead dolls!  You have great ideas ladies and I will probably be making all of them in the future.  Since, I can only do one thing at a time I picked out Claire’s suggestion on what to make with them.  Claire said:” I think of a bracelet made from a chain, with matrioshka paper beads dangling like charms…simple but pretty and you could see well those cuties” Here they are dangling like charms displaying all their pretty faces as a Pin:)


You put this on you and you don’t only make yourself smile others too who will find these cuties just adorable!


Note: Hi Claire, please email me your address so I can send you two of the dolls.  You won!!!!

Hammered Hoops – day 194

I would call this earrings “instant pick me up.” It frames your face beautifully and you can’t help but feel like a million bucks!  Button paper beads in blue jeans color is the main focal point of this hoop earrings.


Adding the hammered look to a piece makes it more “designer” looking, don’t you think?

Black Lace Crochet – day 193

Posted on Aug 13, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

Crocheted black wire has the look of black lace with its open spaces and flexibility of the 28 gauge wire makes it perfect for wire crochet.  The tiny paper beads are ideal for projects like bead crochet and crochet with wire, I even find it easier than seed beads.


This goes perfectly well with the crocheted carnelian earrings.
