I Heart Paper Beads – day 15

Small turquoise colored paper beads are connected with rosary loops to have that delicate feminine look.  A brass heart charm completes the look! We used one inch eye pins and 6mm paper bead rounds.  I do believe I have a tutorial on how to make rosary loops. If you haven’t been to my face book […]

Earrings is something of a must have or must wear for me and I’m sure almost all women are.  We can be seen without make up but not without earrings.  When you have everything at hand; ear wires, some paper beads, and findings you are good to go, you can make a new pair in […]

If you’re like me you get your inspiration from your surroundings, what you see in magazines or even television and the internet of course has tons of ideas.  Today’s project was inspired by snow capped mountains that greet me each morning as I make my coffee.  I love snow as long as you only see […]

The Style Of Steam Punk

The Style Of Steam Punk

Paper beads steam punk style?  Why not?  After all, paper beads date back to the Victorian era, certainly something those ladies are familiar with.  I got this big, old rusty key from the Pasadena Show last year and just got the chance to do something with it.  Extra small round beads and tube paper beads […]

Cascading Copper Earrings – 9th day

Cascading Copper Earrings – 9th day

We were making the matching bracelet to the necklace that was yesterday’s post but then we realize that it would be perfect as pair of earrings instead.  The turquoise colored olive paper beads complements the bronze pearls really well. We used the same five loop earring finding for the necklace. You can make the bracelet […]

Copper And Pearls

Copper And Pearls

Turquoise colored paper beads are paired with pearls and antiqued copper chains in this multi strand necklace.  We love the bronze hue of the pearls and its imperfect shape, somehow gives this piece a whole organic look to it.  Kayla used an earring finding (which I think is clever!) to hold the copper strands together. […]

I See Zebras-day 5

I See Zebras-day 5

Animal prints I think never go out of style and the zebra print is the perfect black and white combination.  I use the big round beads and painted them white.  Using the Nail Art nail polish I just randomly drew black lines around the bead. They don’t have to be perfect zebra stripes, once you […]
