Chains, Gems and Paper Beads – day 188

Posted on Aug 9, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

It is good to be back!  I honestly did not realize how much I missed sharing with you ideas and paper bead inspirations.  It was hectic around here the last few weeks and I apologize for not posting, I wish there were more than 24 hours in a day.  Anyway, here’s day 188 I mix paper beads and cracked crystal that reminded me of fruit salad 🙂


It has a tropical feel to it, don’t you think?


I have received the most amazing matryoshka doll in paper beads from Manou!  Can anybody tell how to spell matryoshka?  I would need your input on how to incorporate them into my creations.


  1. hi janice !
    nice to see you back too !
    this necklace is very pretty in these cool colors! (the crystals are cracked even think about ice cubes!) just like a fruit salad indeed!

    I am pleased to see that matriochkas arrived safely!
    I put a comment above …
