Story Bracelet in Paper Beads


April 22nd is Earth Day and will be celebrated nationwide. It is amazing to see the things we have achieved over the years in terms of making efforts to be more earth friendly.

In honor of this day, I made this whimsical bracelet, which is made out of paper beads. In one of my trips to the old book store we have in town I came across Aesop’s Fables and I thought it would be fun to incorporate the stories with the paper beads. I photo copied the pages and then cut out the words and the animal faces to fit the photo charms and set them with Diamond Glaze (buy Diamond Glaze). I like that it does not only tell a story but teaches a lesson. If you would like the whole story as it was written I will be happy to email them to you. Anyway, here is the story bracelet of The Fox and the Grapes from Aesop’s Fables.

    How wonderful, I would love to adapt this
    for pre-teens to make, as easy as possible.
    Would only have abouat a short 90 minutes
    to complete the project with a group of
    about 12 – 15.

    Love the story bracelet; just bought the materials at your shop (Aubrey’s Beads in Glendora) and will be working on it soon. Already have an order just from describing this to a co-worker.
