Ribbon Necklace and Earrings Set

Posted on Apr 5, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

The nice yellow and orange colors of these small round paper beads, has inspired Kayla G to make this beautiful earrings and necklace set.   Each paper bead is just wire wrapped to dangle on a chain.


Each paper bead is put on the head pin and wire wrapped to the chain.


The same thing with the necklace, you determine how long you want it to be, your pattern and attach the dangles to the gold chain.


The ribbon ends were wire wrapped with 24 gauge wire (any end finding is also recommended) and attach it to the chain.  This looks very nice in the back.


She added glass flower beads, I think fabric flowers or ribbon flowers would also look adorable.

I really love the idea of making my own jewelry with paper beads because I can match it with an outfit, I can make them dressy or casual, and anything is just possible, don’t forget a conversation piece.

I accompanied these unique paper beads with Swarovski crystals attaching them with illusion cord and crimps onto an eye pin and added top them off with spacers.

I am still playing with my heat embossing tool and experimented new shapes like this elongated cone using the metal paper bead roller. I then, took a piece of string an glued it onto the paper bead using tacky glue.

I added 4 mm swarovski crystals at the bottom of each string of illusion cord to give it a dressy look.  Also, the array of beautiful colors made it look somewhat like a fire cracker, with the browns, burgundy, and champagne all accented with gold.
