Wire Wrapped Bead – day 80

Posted on Mar 21, 2011 in Paper Bead Creations | 5 comments

I am experimenting mixing paper beads with wire,  love the result.  Wire wrapped paper beads are very simple to do and yet, it looks like you spent a lot of time making it.  The swirls of the wire complements the swirls you see in the paper beads.


Here’s a video on how-to….
