Beaded Balls – day 57

Posted on Feb 26, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 5 comments

I have been making a lot of stuff lately using the tiny paper beads.  I remember making rosary beads in high school by beading around a big hole bead with seed beads.  This is kind of the same technique except I am using paper beads around a painted wood bead.

I love how this came out, they look chunky but at the same time so feminine, don’t you think?

I used thin fishing line to string the beads and sew it around the wood bead.  I wanted to make a necklace but did not have enough of the wooden bead.

It is a beautiful day today despite the threat of possible torrent, more beautiful because Kayla and I are going to a gem fair today in Costa Mesa, yay!!!!  Whatever great finds we bring with us I will be sharing with my readers, so stay tuned for a giveaway 🙂

Paper Bead Clusters

Posted on Aug 5, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

I think the word cluster is a more appropriate name for these paper bead balls, because it is a cluster of tiny paper beads and seed beads all bunched up together to form kind of a ball.  We are coming up with a ring to go with it, we’ll see how that will turn up, in the meantime here’s the Paper Bead Clusters Necklace and Earrings:
