Magazine Swirls Ring-day 121

Posted on May 2, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 6 comments

Ever since I discovered that the saucer shape beads makes great rings I have been making a few of what I call Magazine Swirls Ring.  Unlike the regular tube paper bead where you can see the pattern of the paper and some words on the bead itself, all that you see in the saucer shape bead are the colors of the sides of the paper strips.


They are beautiful in itself, and all you need to do really is glue them into a ring finding.


Or, you can jazz it up with a bunch of beads on top…..


It certainly brings out the Green Diva in you 🙂



  1. I have been looking for what you call botton beads or in this case you call saucer shape beads but I can’t find them anywhere and I haven’t been able to make them. Do you have a video that show how they are made?

  2. i agree.and different designs both sides. magazine colors are the best.

  3. These are so cool I love all the different colors you can see within the swirls

  4. I’m going to try this one tomorrow.

    You are so creative! I love this site!


  5. wow! I love the 1st and the second! they are really pretty! natural color of magazine paper is really ideal for this idea … they have a pretty worn on the hand…!!

  6. That’s very cute. I also like the natural magazine colors.
