Hi there!

Finally I've found some time to share with you my recent hobby of making jewelry from hardpaper circles covered with woolen thread. They make quite nice and interesting "beads", very versitile and suitable for different jewelry pieces. The project I love best is this purple necklace, embellished with matching Czech glass beads



I've also made several cord necklaces using macrame technique and these woolen circles as pendants







and earrings





Thank you guys for looking! I'd appreciate your comments, both negative and positive!

Oooohh, pretty!  I like the purple one the best, but they're all eye-catching. 

What a great idea, too - simple materials that look very elegant in execution.  Do you have to glue the thread down to the paper/cardboard, or tie it?  The thread just looks like it lays down so perfectly. 

thanks for sharing.

Thank you!

Actually, I make two layers of the thread, and the first layer is glued. The circles are very lightweight, and I like that I can make them any desirable color. Making them takes some time, but it's rather a soothing process than boring. And they can be made of different sizes!

Hi there!

I just wanted to share my new creation with you. It's with plastic circle beads for little additional embellishment. Hope you like it Smiley


Let me know what you think of the colors, cause this summer I decided to get myself some green clothing, thus green accessories are kinda topical...

These are great - the woolen circles feel very old-fashionedy to me, which I love. The hearts are especially fun.
