Whoo!  My first challenge!



My goal was to create something with a more fashion-y feel out of something cheap Smiley  I made all of the magazine beads.  Both the dangling wooden beads at the end as well as the big wooden round beads at the top were found at the thrift store.  I had to buy the seed beads, though!

Here are the separate layers:

And on me!

Oh hey, this was my first time using the timer on the camera.  No more mirror photos, thank you very much!

Please let me know what you think!

Oh yeah, I was inspired by this post:

Thanks for reminding me of how much fun DIY paper beads are!

OMFreakingG, that is so pretty, and I am pretty sure this is a winner. This has so much impact. So I'm gonna pin it as soon as I get the button on this machine.

 You know, the more I look at this, the more WEARABLE it is to me! I would really love to see it with a black dress under it~ Maybe even a red?

Little black dress with magazine beads?  I like the idea of wearing something traditional and classy with them.  Haven't tried it yet though Tongue

And Kris O - Feel free to share away!  I wouldn't post it online if I didn't want people to see it Smiley

Thanks everyone!
