Corkscrew Earrings – day 176

Earrings are quick and simple to do and they fit everybody 🙂  If you just take one day and make a few pairs you have basically taken care of some ladies on your Christmas list.


I used 20 gauge non tarnish craft wire, did a spiral at the bottom, coiled it around a mandrel and added the small round paper beads.  I put a dab of gs hypo cement to hold the paper beads in place and voila!

Cleo’s Cuff

Posted on Oct 6, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

I can imagine this bracelet on Cleopatra’s wrist sans the snake coiled around her arms.  I just love the chocolate brown color of the beads which makes me think of hot chocolate with marshmallows on top, but Kayla wants to call it Tootsie Rolls.  The paper bead tube measures 1 1/4 inch long and 1/4 inch wide, this makes this cuff big and bold fit for a queen!


I took a 20 gauge craft wire and coiled the ends to make it look like swirls and scrolls pretty much like the pattern on this scrap book paper.


I took an elastic and put it through the loops at the ends of the paper bead and tied a square knot.  In between are catheral 4 mm bicone swarovski crystals for sparkle!


Or, you could just do simple loops to put your elastic through.
