Handmade Paper Bead Necklace

Last week one night while watching TV I made my first paper beads.  I used a colourful Toys"R"Us flyer for the paper.  There is definitely a technique to making these beads and I plan to perfect them next time.  They were fun to make.  I used clear nailpolish to laquer them up once they were dried.  The pictures don't show them very well....
Then I wired the paper beads, turquoise and swarovski bead with silver plate wire. 
and them a new necklace...
was born...
 I was quite pleased with this first attempt with the paper beads.  I particularly liked the paper because it had so many different colours including turquoise and will complement many uses.

Fun.  Have you made paper beads?  Judi xoxo
