Cleo’s Paper Bead Bracelet

To me, this looks like what a modern Cleopatra will have on her wrist, a bracelet made up of recycled magazines.  I have a penchant for taking inexpensive jewelry apart and replacing them with paper beads.  I love the idea of turning ordinary to extraordinary.  I call this Cleo’s Bracelet because the little triangle sections looks like little pyramids.  We replace the wood beads in the original bracelet with little round paper beads, Kayla did a good job of matching the colors.


The bracelet with the wood beads in the middle had a metal finding that can hold six strands.


The round paper beads we used has such a nice sky blue color with swirls of tan…..


Here it is on the wrist!


Another day of turning ordinary to extraordinary.
