Chunky Wood and Paper Beads

Posted on Dec 8, 2009 in Paper Bead Creations | 3 comments

I fell in love with these huge wood beads and because they are light and smooth they are a  good companion to paper beads.  I like the fact that I am able to achieve the look of big and bold but very light and comfortable to wear as jewelry.  To get that earthy look I strung it with the diamond shaped paper beads which has just the mix magazine colors to it.


I made the bracelet with elastic cord and to give it “bling” I strung one big crystal ball and it just made it more fun, I think.


Here it is on the wrist.


And, up close.


I’d say this could take your from day to night 🙂



  1. THESE are gorgeous!!!!!!

  2. Wonderful idea with adding paper beads. We here at appreciate the thought of anyone using paper beads. In Kampala, Uganda the great ladies of Caring Hands know this changes their lives. Keep up the great work

  3. How do you make the round, almost marble shaped paper beads? I’m trying and trying but can’t seem to make it work…..
