So, I fished a sheet of kiddo's sheet music out of the recycling, and made beads. I didn't cut the paper neatly, I was sloppy, the beads aren't even. But I did it! And I think I need to make more. Taking my time next time, of course.
I strung them on a broken necklace, interspersed with random beads, and knotted the chain at the end. Ran wire around the last bead, too. Just something for fun, even if it is sloppy.

You are BRILLIANT for using music sheets! The problem I've always had with that kind of bead is that they had too many random colors no matter what you used. Sheet music is such a great idea! They look great!
