I love jewelry. But art jewelry is often way too expensive. That’s when I learned about paper beading.
Paper rolling is something I used in a previous post to make a picture frame.
Paper beads are a tinier version of the same. Tiny, vibrant and beautiful.
Take a look at my paper bead jewelry.
The first thing you will be needing are paper beads. Here’s a quick video tutorial to show you how to turn glossy magazine paper into colorful beads.
Fun isn’t it? Think of all the possibilities you can make with these colorful beads.
For jewelry making.
Things I used:
- Paper beads
- Stones and beads from an old bracelet
- Thin crochet thread
- Loops from old earrings
First I threaded a thin crochet thread through a needle. Using double ply is best for strength.
Now I began threading the beads in the order I wanted. Since I wasn’t going to add any kind of fasteners at both ends, I simply made a long necklace that could be worn just like that. When the desired length was reached, I simply tied both ends together.
For the earrings, I threaded the beads in a thread and tied the upper end to the loops of old earrings. That’s it!
My paper bead jewelry is ready!
