Beaded Kumihimo – day 196

Posted on Aug 15, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

My last visit to jtv, I got the chance of meeting Anne Dilker, the Kamikaze of Kumhimo as she is aptly described by Kim the energetic host of jewel school. If you know me, I try to incorporate paper beads into everything.  I had fun making this Purple Pendant, but then I love anything in shades of purple:)


I think I did a tutorial about this from a home made kuhihimo disc.  I love the fact that you can bead the braid itself and it is a mindless task, something that you can do while watching tv or traveling.

Accessories to Paper Beads

Posted on Jul 29, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

I was just thinking about it the other day that I did not miss wearing business clothes, suits and high heels.  I am grateful that I don’t have to do that anymore, once a month, maybe.  I work from home most of the time, go to the shop, run errands…….and always dress casual but always with jewelry, custom jewelry-paper beads jewelry!  I love to mix it with my other fashion accessories.  I added a new category to my etsy shop – Accessories, where you will find fun rings, pendants that will go nicely with paper beads.
