Elim, just like the rest of us got hooked on making paper beads, and she makes some real nice ones.  She also blogs about her other interests like polymer clay and fun jewelry, you can see some of her stuff including a watch with a band made out of paper beads, here.

She certainly has an eye for color! I recognize some beads from the bead swap 🙂

Layer, Stack Together – day 60

Posted on Feb 28, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

Diamond shape paper beads in magazine colors are mixed with heshi in this necklace which is meant to be layered.  Just like the stacking rings, you can certainly wear two or three at the same time.

I love making these, because they are so simple to do.  All you need is medium beading wire, crimp beads and magnetic clasp.

Here it is, stacked with the coral and round paper beads.

I promise I will do a tutorial so you can see how easy they are to make 🙂

Beaded Flowers by Linda

Posted on Aug 10, 2010 in Other Crafts & Crafty People | Comments Off on Beaded Flowers by Linda

I am sharing with you today the work of Linda Barnett.  Aside from her new hobby of making paper beads, she makes these beautiful beaded flowers, a craft that she learned from her grandmother.  Linda lives in the U.K. but was kind enough to send me her beautiful flowers, it is not too late for us to be wearing these.  The flowers had stems, but Kayla and I thought that it is better displayed on strands of olive shaped paper beads.

blog1

The olive shaped paper beads were just strung on a beading wire and the flowers were just wire wrapped into the strands.

blog2

How about a head band made out of paper beads and these flowers on top?

I love this soft pink paper beads, it went so well with Linda’s flowers

Jingle, Jangle

Posted on Aug 9, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 7 comments

If you have the patience to make really small paper beads, then this project is for you 🙂  Each of the tiny paper beads, about 4-5mm in size is put through a jump ring then connected to the chain to make these beautiful set that jingles and jangles when you wear them.

Paper Bead Necklace and Bracelet

I tried it on, and the bead feels so nice to the touch you cannot help but play with them.
