Hopefully, this in in the right place...

I find that I'm addicted to making paper beads. Thus far, I've only been concerned with expanding my collection but my boyfriend inspired me to actually to start making things, so, here goes!



This is how I closed it off. Is there a better way to do it? (Ignore the chipped polish)

I doubled the cord on itself and used crimp beads after I knotted it.

This isn't true to color at all. (One day I'll become a better photographer lol)


And the matching bracelet. Ignoring the shadows, this one is true to color.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo

Very nice. I can't see the clasp to comment on that but the beads themselves are beautiful. I really like the purple bracelet, the colors go well together.

I really love the purple ones- but one question though. What the world are paper beads? I have not ever heard of those kind of beads. I have seen glass beads like the one you have here in the red ones.

Those are lovely beads you've made.  I agree with the boyfriend, keep making stuff with them.
