Pearl And Shells Paper Bead Necklace

Posted on Feb 19, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

I finally figured out how to wire wrapped a pearl pendant in the shape of a cross.  It was quite a bit of a challenge because the holes ran diagonally instead of top to bottom.  I took apart a necklace I purchased earlier at a thrift shop that had these bead caps made our of shell. I wire wrapped each bead to each other and the bead caps are just perfect for the paper bead holes.  The paper beads I used for this necklace are small round ones and have a nice apple green color.


Here’s a video on how to do a basic wire loop with bead caps.


I have these earrings in a different kind of green, I think  goes very well with it.



The basic wire loop is not that complicated and you will be an expert in a few hours of practice.



  1. I gotta question. how many mm are the metal bead caps from the video tutorial and how many mm are the daisy spacer beads at the bottom of the earrings? thanks..

    • Hi Elim,

      The daisy spacers and the bead caps are both 5mm. Janice
