Paper Bead Balls

Posted on Aug 4, 2010 in How-To's / Tutorials | 5 comments

These little charm balls are so simple, to dangle as charms or as a connector.  The materials that you need:  head pins or eye pins, 6/0 seed beads, 4mm crystals and 5mm round paper beads.  Tools:  flush cutter and round nose pliers.

I would certainly like to try using the olive shaped paper beads mix with round beads, I think that would look pretty also.
