Wearable Paper Beads Jewelry

Posted on Oct 3, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 16 comments

I have always wondered, do you wear your paper bead jewelry?  Let me rephrase the question, are you proud enough to wear your paper bead jewelry to a party, church, family gathering, wedding?  I think paper beads has come a long way, from a favorite Sunday craft for kids to fine pieces of jewelry created as wearable art.  Are you up for a challenge? Here’s how it works:  The first 10 readers of this blog who can send me a photo of herself all spruced up wearing paper bead jewelry will receive a choice of paper bead roller kit, crystals and findings kit or 2 strands of paper beads ! Here’s is another version of Spiralling With Paper Beads which has been quite popular at etsy after it was featured in Etsy Findings blog.  I call this 1066 Paper Beads Necklace because it has one thousand six hundred sixty six tiny paper beads! And yes, I actually counted them 🙂


I must say, you need a little bit of courage to wear something paper amidst the glitter of diamonds and gold.  I paired this piece with little heart diamond earrings, it was a wedding after all.


Got tons of compliments, it was something different and extraordinary!

  2. Ohhh, I’d love the crystals and findings please. Do you still have my address?

  3. Janice,

    How could anyone think that paper beads are not elegant, looking at how beautiful you are in the picture!

    And paper beads are addicting. I look at junk mail in a whole new light now. It has become a bit of a joke in my family. My husband and kids are always asking if they can throw “this” or “that” out! Most of the time the answer is, “No, I can make beads out of that”!

    I’ve forwarded a picture of me wearing some of my favorite pieces. Thank you again for your inspiration!

  4. Does video count? I’m wearing paper bead earrings and a bracelet in my latest Youtube video.
