One of the things I love to do is sharing the work of other paper bead fanatic.  Today, we have Jane McBride, she loves experimenting with them and here is the outcome:

The look like pineapples don’t you think?  I also love the way Jane made earrings out of the saucer shape beads, very designer like 🙂 What a neat idea!


Jane made this saucer or button bead with a small opening for the jump ring to go in, how ingenious! I would love to try this.


If you want to share your work please email me in the Contact Us link, we would love to see it.
