Saw the challenge a while ago and wanted to enter but almost forgot. I'm new so I'm sure if I'm doing this right.
A closeup of the necklace:
I made a paperbead necklace I used newspaper (doubled, 1/4 inch wide) to make the beads (then I coated them) and mixed them with some other glass beads, and key I found.
Heres two more pic's if it works, first the whole necklace;
And a close-up of the beads;
I was looking through other posts, and there was a tip about making paper beads with tubing from something like a spray bottle, incredibly helpful! The only thing I do differently is use stick glue when I roll them, but the other way may work cleaner. And I always try to coat them with something, I used to use nail polish which can add some interesting color.
I want to win, but there are some other awesome entries, you all are so artistic! I can't wait to try other challenges
