Kayla’s Paper Beads Mandala

Posted on Jan 22, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 8 comments

We are quite busy preparing for the Craft and Hobby Association Show, I promise that we will bring you lots of news and photos on what’s going on in this big crafting event held in Anaheim, California.  One of the samples that will be on display on our table is a Mandala inspired pendant made by Kayla C. (there’s two Kaylas).  I think it came out really nice, reminds me almost of a dream catcher.  The paper beads she used for this pendant has the same pattern in each strand which is really neat, I think this is made from same page of a magazine.


Here’s Kayla, sporting her creation



We had fun with it yesterday in the middle of heavy down pour.  It can definitely be worn with anything and anyone, and still look cool don’t you think?


Few minutes after our “photo session” came the heavy downpour, never experienced before as far as I can remember.


We got a little wet, believe it or not, these beads are so well made it survived the rain.  I hope you stay safe and warm.  I welcome any questions about this project, any question at all, just email me or even better leave me a comment.
