I feel like I'm mass-producing jewellery now, but it's so much fun Cheesy

I came across this photo of a beach dress with a really colourful pattern on it and thought it would make great tube beads. I made so many that I decided to make earring and a matching necklace. I have never made necklaces before, so I was very excited. So excited infact, that I couldn't wait till the next day and ended up sitting in bed in the middle of the night making jewellery. Fun times Smiley





I've also made more wire wrapped earrings. I feel like I've found a style that really suits me and my beads.









What do you think?

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

These are absolutely beautiful!
I've tried to make paper beads but mine never come out as uniform as yours.   Undecided
Think someday you might do a tutorial?

Those look really great - but I have to say, from the small pic on the front page I thought they were tampon covers  Cheesy Sorry!

Thank you Smiley I've never really thought about making my own tutorial, since there are so many already available. I used Amelia Lune's tutorial, which is a really good one. My main tip is to only roll a little bit at the time and constantly check if the strip is centered and the bead looks even. Once the beads are rolled up, I adjust it as needed before varnishing them. Also you should roll the paper strip as tight at you can without ripping it.
