  3. To get the circles of colors I’m guessing you used paper stock in yellow and then red and then blue to get a variety of color swirls… or are they painted? When I do magazine pages they aren’t very colorful.
    Your saucer beads are beautiful and a tallent!

  5. Janice,

    Please tell me how to purchase some of these big paper saucer beads. I’m going crazy over them! I’ve been trying for a month now and just can’t seem to purchase them. How do I do this? I’m so frustrated.

      They have been quite popular. I just re listed them on etsy. Janice

  6. Those are really neat! I can only imagine how long it takes to roll one of those!

  7. I will be mailing my paper beads out to you for the trade this Wednesday, July 14th since you indicated that we would have until the 15th of July to mail our beads for the bead trade to you. Is that still the case?

    • Karina,

      You can go ahead and mail your beads. Janice

  8. I love them. Are the colors just natural from the paper or was it painted also? I am so looking forward to the wire wrapping.

  9. Janice,
    My paper beads might be a bit after Tuesday or today. But it will make it before the 15th. Is that okay?

    • Hi Ashley,

      Yes, it is fine. Since you have emailed me and informed me I will make sure you get a kit too 🙂
