Ethnic Look w/ Paper Beads

Posted on Dec 9, 2009 in Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

I’ve had this mother of pearl pendant in the form of a lizard for quite sometime and din’t quite know what to do with it.  I was shopping for beads the other day and came across with what look like wood beads, in fact I was told they were wood beads but upon closer examination, I found that they are irregular in shape and has smaller holes just like that of seed beads.  They are very light, weighs almost like nothing.  I just loved them.  After staring at them for quite some time (you know how it is when you are trying to decide on a design), I thought they would be a perfect companion to the diamond shaped paper beads and the lizard mother of pearl pendant.  So, here is the finished necklace.


I made a matching necklace, using the same diamond shaped paper beads.


I think this necklace would look just as cool on a man’s neck, my husband said he would wear it.

  1. That looks so lovely! Those beads all go together so well, and that lizard is such a neat focal point.
