Color of Fall-Paper Bead Trade

Posted on Sep 20, 2010 in How-To's / Tutorials, Paper Bead Creations | 6 comments

A few bead traders have already signed up for our Color Of Fall Paper Bead Trade, and I will leave this post open until Friday to  give a chance to those new visitors to our blog.  I will continue to update this post each day with new fall jewelry ideas and paper beads with fall colors. How does it work?  To make instructions easier to digest, here’s a little poem for you 🙂

Make Paper Beads of different size and shapes

with the color of fall

Twenty to Thirty should be plenty

You will then send it to me

To be stirred into a most colorful brew

A dash of orange, brown and yellow

It will look like a rainbow

It will then be sent back to you

In a pretty little bow

When you get your beads you can make it into a necklace or a bracelet, let your imagination take a flight!  Here is an example of bracelets, wire wrapped with gold swarovski crystals. These Golden Paper Bead Bracelets is just right in time for the holidays.

The finished paper bead jewelry would be multi colored and different shapes as it will show case the different beads from all the participants.  I always say this; paper beads jewelry can be elegant and I just treat paper beads as if it were real gems.  Here is an example of paper beads mixed with montana blue swarovski crystals.


Silver bead caps were put in between to hold the paper beads on its side.


Paper beads can be fun, elegant, chic and definitely wearable!
