Multi Strand Paper Beads Necklace

Posted on Apr 7, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

When I saw this antique copper chains, I thought it would be a nice to mix it with brightly colored olive shaped paper beads. The vibrant magazine colors of the olive shaped paper beads accent the antique copper chain extremely well. The browns and burgundys really stand out in this necklace. Of course you can not miss the all sorts of bright colors, that really give this necklace a summery feel.

The oxidized chain or any kind of antiqued chain, would look good with the paper beads.

The nice yellow and orange colors of these small round paper beads, has inspired Kayla G to make this beautiful earrings and necklace set.   Each paper bead is just wire wrapped to dangle on a chain.

Each paper bead is put on the head pin and wire wrapped to the chain.

The same thing with the necklace, you determine how long you want it to be, your pattern and attach the dangles to the gold chain.

The ribbon ends were wire wrapped with 24 gauge wire (any end finding is also recommended) and attach it to the chain.  This looks very nice in the back.

She added glass flower beads, I think fabric flowers or ribbon flowers would also look adorable.
