Pearlized Pastels

Bead caps can be a bit expensive, but not polymer clay bead caps.  It is a great substitute for silver or metal ones, plus you can make it any size you like to fit your paper beads.  I want to share with you two new things; polymer bead caps and fabric paper beads.


Fabric paper beads is a new product from the Philippines.  What happens when paper marries fabric?  Bliss 🙂


I thought this two would go well together, we’ll see…..

    Oooh, love this website. I made some paper beads about a month ago, had to share it with the ladies at the nursing home and they loved it too. We haven’t done anything with them though. Great ideas, love the bead caps, we love playing with polymer clay and are always looking for new ideas. Thank so much for sharing. We wondered how to make round beads and I see there is a roller to make them. Will have to check that out.

      Hello Janie,

      These are made of iridescent fabric with fusible web backing. After the show I could do more tutorials, definitely! The bead caps I made with polymer clay. Thank you for the visits, I saved your email for the bead swap. Janice Mae
