Copper And Pearls

Posted on Jan 8, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 5 comments

Turquoise colored paper beads are paired with pearls and antiqued copper chains in this multi strand necklace.  We love the bronze hue of the pearls and its imperfect shape, somehow gives this piece a whole organic look to it.  Kayla used an earring finding (which I think is clever!) to hold the copper strands together.


We are working on a matching bracelet, we’ll see…..

Crocheted Balls

Posted on Jul 7, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 4 comments

One of my passions is crochet.  The only craft where I enjoy reading and following intricate instructions.  I remember first crocheting with my hand when I was six years old.  I crocheted over these wood beads, with cotton yarn and I thought they would go very nicely with paper beads.  Kayla, chose the beads to go with it and made matching earrings.  She used the medium olive size beads (1/2 inch long) in very nice tones of yellow and orange.


She used the red crocheted balls for this necklace.


Another nice addition to paper beads would be fabric covered beads.


She also made earrings to match


This piece can go with a simple linen suit, definitely wearable to the office, don’t you think?
