Paper Bead Trade Idea #2

Posted on Jun 25, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

In case you’re wondering, Idea # 1 was yesterday’s post, Come Into My Garden Bracelet where we used buttons to add to our paper beads.  The paper bead tube is the most common paper bead shape and versatile in the sense that it can be used for home decorating; curtains, vases, purses, etc., but can also be easily transformed into pretty jewelry.  I love mixing paper beads with crystals and even gem stones and why not?  Here’s our Idea #2 using 3/4 inch tube paper beads and cloisonne beads. 

Paper Bead Tubes

What you need for this project is: .8mm elastic, 3/4 inch paper bead tubes, 6/0 seed beads and cloisonne bead or any type of focal bead.


I cut about 10 inches of elastic and make sure to put a bead stopper at the end or string from a spool and make sure that the paper bead with the largest hole will be closest to the knot you will tie at the end, so that it’s easy for that bead to accommodate the knot.


You will then tie a square knot, right over left and left over right. 



It looks beautiful even among real jewelry……It kind of remind me of Victorian ladies rolling paper beads. 


Paper Bead Trade Idea # 3 will be the ring and earring set made out from zentangle paper beads.
