Our very first show at the Pasadena Bead and Design

Our small booth at the Pasadena Bead and Design Show

Our very first show in Pasadena!  We were happy with the results, a lot of people stopped by, bought, commented on our beautiful paper bead jewelry.  The paper beads hand made by men and women in the Philippines are so well made can often be mistaken for shells or real beads.

One of our displays that garnered so much attention is the paper bead skirt that Kayla made.  Our booth was so small we did not have any place for it we just had to prop it up on our table.


It was such a fun event, I just wish I had more time to go around and look in other booths, there were just so many beads, pearls, gem stones even beads made out cloth!  I wish I took pictures, maybe next time…..

Across from our booth is the Ckoop Beads, I will be writing about her in my next post, Sara makes amazing enameled copper beads, pendants and findings.

Not far from me, was a table of vintage lucite beads and did a little shopping.  I was like a kid in a candy store, well they do look like candies.


It is so hard to keep my hand off them and make them into something, most likely with paper beads.


I could just imagine a bunch of paper beads cascading down the petals of these beauties.


Just perfect for fall


These beads are huge, I have a Wilma necklace or bracelet in mind for this one.


Something blue……


This will have to wait for Easter.


A necklace or a bracelet?  How about earrings?


Trick or Treat?


So many beads, so little time.

Easter Egg Surprise Necklace in Paper Beads

Posted on Apr 8, 2009 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

I found this egg shaped ceramic among my stash of beads and it reminds me of hand painted egg, paired with petite egg shaped paper beads in delicious colors and you have a necklace that wouldn’t just look good for Easter but through out the year. I took pictures of it at the backyard when I remember hiding eggs in there, now the kids are grown and I missed the egg hunting and the enjoyable task of egg painting and hiding little presents in them. Like they say, one door closes and another one opens, I found out that I am going to be a grandmother soon, by September to be exact. In two years I will have a little one egg hunting in our back yard again. In the meantime, here’s the Easter Egg Necklace in Paper Beads. Happy Easter everyone!
