My Paper Beads – by Elim

Elim, just like the rest of us got hooked on making paper beads, and she makes some real nice ones.  She also blogs about her other interests like polymer clay and fun jewelry, you can see some of her stuff including a watch with a band made out of paper beads, here.


She certainly has an eye for color! I recognize some beads from the bead swap 🙂


Love the burst of color on this necklace.


These earrings are so Betsy Johnson (ish)! Don’t you think?


And the more earthy colors that just goes with anything.


I hope we have inspired you to make jewelry with your paper beads.  Elim, thanks for sharing.

    I am wearing a necklace right now that I made with one of Elim’s beads from the paper swap. It is a beautiful big green bead that I have centered on the necklace with other paper beads that I made. I have taken pictures of what I made from the swap, but need to send them along! Elim, your beads are beautiful. How do you make them so perfectly? Are you layering paper? thanks…
