I like the ones with the brass buttons the most.  They are all quite nice!  Good job for your first earrings!

Oh my, these are so beautiful, i've long been inspired by Amelia Lune too, and was going to try my hand at paper beads making. How do you keep the strips aligned? My bicone beads have all been disastrous so i'll be trying rectangular ones!

I love those first pair of earrings. I'm not a jewellery wearing person but I'd seriously wear those all the time if I had them. The others are gorgeous too.

Wow! You made an awesome jewellery. I have seen the photos of that earrings that you appear here. According to me if you add a gold in it then it will look very fine after it. Thanks a lot for sharing it with us.

They look nice with the wire - I think my favourite pair are the green and gold ones, they look rather elegant!

The first pair of earrings were my favorite. I actually gasped when I saw them. Great work. What kind of paper do you use? I've picked up scrapbook paper but they don't seem to be as colorful as these are. Thanks for any tips you can give!

Aww, thank you Smiley the first pair are my favorite too Smiley I use magazine paper, mostly ads and photoshoots in fashion magazines, because they tend to have beautiful colours and minimal text. For the green beads in the first picture though, I found this random magazine page with a full page underwater photo of a fish in one of my uni studios, so really any page with beautiful colours. I also find that magazine paper is thin enough to make the beads look more like real beads compared to scrapbook paper, but that's just my personal taste. Newspaper works well too and if you can foreign ones with a different kind of written langauge, like Chinese, Indian, Arabic etc, it makes them look even cooler Smiley

So much creativity..
So little time...

I have an Epla-shop for my paper bead earrings (it's like Etsy, but in Norwegian):
