Delicious Paper Bead Lei

Posted on Jun 4, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

Lei is a Hawaiian word for anything strung together to be worn as an adornment.  The chunky paper beads in cream and reds inspired me to make this Paper Bead Lei and bracelet set to look like a yummy dessert much like one of these images I found on the internet.

It also much resembled my all time favorite dessert, the banana split!

3 Strand Chunky Necklace

Posted on Apr 21, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | Comments Off on 3 Strand Chunky Necklace

You open fashion magazines and what you see are bold and chunky jewelry.  Kayla G, fell in love with the white agate and dyed Socho jade.  Looking at this necklace, it would still be pretty with just the two strands of white agate and socho jade.  And then again, if you want to take ordinary to extraordinary, add the Paper Beads and boom!  You have transformed the necklace to something special.


In Kayla’s own words:

I made sure each strand consisted of a different shape and size to clearly show the uniqueness and beauty of each stone. The White Agate is a nugget shape, the Socho Jade is a coin shape and the Paper Beads are olive shaped.

After I was finished stranding each strand on soft flex, I twisted the strands together and connected them to an eye pin and added a bead cap.


The necklace is about 22″ in length
