Manou’s Matryoshkas

Posted on Aug 10, 2011 in My Paper Beads | 9 comments

I would like to share with you, Manou’s  paper bead Matryoshkas.  I first saw these when we had the painted paper bead swap.  Manou painstakingly painted each one of them and they are just super cute, don’t you think?


I think she first made cone beads with a wide base and painted each one to look like Matryoshka doll.  Manou visits me regularly so you can ask her questions here about these cute paper bead creations.


Here’s the challenge:  How would you incorporate these cute paper bead dolls into your design?  I need your comments, inputs and ideas!  What I consider the best design idea will win a set (2) Matryoshka Paper Bead Dolls.

If you look at these cones closely you can see words, and you can make these so that it tells a story (a short one).  To have them hanging on a chain, reminds me a monks tassels on their belt, this is what inspired me to make this necklace.


I love to see the swirls of words twirled to make it into a cone shape.  You know how to make these right?  I know I have a tutorial somewhere, it is actually very simple.  You start it by rolling a triangle strip and when you have a finished bead, push the center using a pen or pencil and you have a cone shape!


The wood beads and the brown fresh water pearls added to its mystic.
