Color Of Candy-day 7

Posted on Jan 7, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 5 comments

Chevron beads have been around for a long time, they are colorful beads cut from a glass cane and has a distinctive star design from where the bead is cut from the cane.  They look to me like hard candy while Kayla thinks that the finished necklace has all these bright colors that resembles the United Nations’ flags.  Kayla carefully hand selected the diamond shaped paper beads that goes into this piece.
