I am going to share with you what Hilde and Deb did with their trade beads.  It is always fun how each one of us came up with ideas on how to use the paper beads.

Hilde describes her work best:

“As you knoxw from my previous work, I like the etnic look. I bought one wooden bead and made a combination with the big saucerbead. present them on a picture of an African young lady. You have to wear it like this: the wooden bead and the saucer bead has to hang on the right side and not down the necklace. I also made some earrings. Especially the turquoise are nice, I think. I like the assymetric look.”

Like me, Hilde makes it fun taking pictures with her paper beads.

Hilde describes this next piece:

“You can also see that I made a bracelet with silver ornaments. I used a square with holes and put some very smal beads on it with  littlle  silver disks above.”


Few days ago, I featured Ralistsa and was so impressed with her video tutorial how that was put together with music background.  She referred to a site she used and I decided to put together something fun for us to remember what we did on the paper bead trade.

Are you ready to dance to the tune of One Fine Day?


  1. So many people have put time into the paper bead trade! It’s great how everything turned out. 🙂

  2. Thanks for your comment,Deb. It’s so funny that we both had a giant saucerbead and made so different things with it. I love the bracelet on the little angel very much.
    Janice, thanks that you had the idea for this swap. Thanks for all your work.

  3. Great job Hilde! I also love how you take your pics!

    Janice that video turned out great! I love how it turned out. Cute!
