My Paper Beads – Sanja Blagus

Posted on Jun 29, 2010 in My Paper Beads | 6 comments

Sanja is one of our readers who like me, takes pleasure in taking pictures of her finished paper beads outside, in her garden.   As you know, outside in natural day light is the best way to take photos of your jewelry.  Sanja made these paper beads out of garden magazines and they came out really pretty, hell000 summer!

Sanja’s other hobby is photography, you can tell she’s having fun with these 🙂  Daisies are such happy flowers, don’t you think?

This bracelet was inspired by one of our tutorials.  I wish I have her hands 🙂

I remember Kayla cut out flowers from one of her mother’s garden magazines and made it into earrings.

She also love incorporating shells into her jewelry making, you can read more about it here. The long three strand necklace held by shells is a nice way to use the long paper bead tubes.

I can almost smell the ocean with these colors


I consider this Design Idea # 4 🙂 You can substitute the shells with a 3 strand finding and you don’t even need a clasp, this will just go over your head.  She certainly looks fetching don’t you think?  Do you have a beach wedding to go to?  This would just be perfect!


Any suggestions for Design Idea # 5?  It would be greatly appreciated.  If you do, just hit the Contact Me link on your right hand side.

Or, if you have a blog or website, leave us a comment with your link. 

Tomorrow, is our last day for the Paper Bead Trade, we have about 20 participants right now that includes me (just providing the filler beads and findings), Kayla and my sister Joann.
