Our Green Version of It

I love leafing through catalogs that I get from the mail, getting ideas (why go to Milan?), and turning them into paper beads after.  I love the Jjill clothing line, they are comfy and perfect for just lounging at home.  This necklace and earrings set, caught my eye, and here’s our version of it in  small round paper beads!

The earrings are very simple and easy to do (it really is!),  the paper beads are strung into a 24 gauge wire, make loops at the end and connect them into a chain, the chain into an earring finding, voila!

Another day of turning the ordinary to extraordinary!



  1. This is so lovely and exquisite. You have my work cut out for me.

    I’ve been making small beads for a long time now and not even close enough to make this yet. But, I’m getting there.


  2. These are adorable! You must have tons of paper beads!

  3. I really like how this turned out! Great version of the original!
