A Necklace for Glenn

Posted on Jan 26, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 3 comments

I am fortunate to have two Kaylas help with with design and ideas for our up coming online paper bead jewelry shop. She came up with a very nice yet ethnic necklace design using paper beads. However, the best part is… It is a design for MEN!


She made this necklace for her boyfriend, Glenn as a present for his birthday. We all know that making jewelry for men can be a little tricky, but the best advice is, keep it simple…

And that is exactly what she did.

The materials Kayla used were: 4mm x-small round paper beads and a nice strand of saucer shaped wood beads. Not only is this necklace easy to make but the materials are very inexpensive.


All she did was strand the beads, starting with a paper beads, then adding a wood bead, and countinued this pattern to her diesired length. Easy as that.


The finished product came out very nice and masculine. It also has a nice variety of colors from the paper beads. I recommend  this design to anyone out there who wants to make a nice piece of jewelry for their husband, boyfriend, sons or any other special boy in their life.
