Ocean’s Paradise Paper Bead Bracelet

Posted on Dec 14, 2009 in Paper Bead Creations | 4 comments

This is one of my absolute favorite bracelets. The vibrant blues, greens & browns remind me of the ocean.


The bracelet consists of a mix of  blue & green shades of India Glass beads, which gives this braclet it’s beautiful chunky look. It is accompanied with bluish colored, Diamond-Shaped paper beads, adding a casual, earthy touch. 



3- 1 yard pieces of Wax Cord

2- Coil Connectors

12 to 15- India Glass Beads

12 to 15- Diamond Shape Paper Beads

1- Lobster Claw

1- Jump ring


I stranded the differnt beads onto three differnt pieces of black wax cord and seperated each bead with three knots. I joined the three finished strands with a coiled connector on one side. I decided to braid them together to give the bracelet a more joined, clunky look and then ended it with another coiled connector.  





Enjoy 🙂


  1. I was looking back at old posts, and I ran into this one. It is one of my favorites!

  2. I had no idea there were paper beads, but I love the idea behind the reusability of paper.

    Also? Just swinging by from SITS!

    Hope you’re having a great week.
