I think they're really really beautiful. This is just a thought, but maybe they would sell better if the display was switched up a bit. Maybe the red cloth is a bit distracting or something like that. I think you do a really nice job of those so hopefully things will pick up for you Smiley

how did u cut the original strips so symmetrically that all the beads are the exact same size and shape? the beads look SO neat and nicely finished, hard to believe made my hand! do u use a rotary paper cutter or something? seems like cutting long THIN triangles for the beads would be hard to do...

I actually did cut them all by hand! I suck at keeping a rotary cutter from veering off in the wrong direction. Smiley Thank you for the nice compliment Cheesy

A couple of new necklaces with paper beads and fabric flowers (crappy photos 'cause I was trying to be quick):

I sell at a local flea market in Canada, the last 4-6 weeks have been lousy for sales.  Too many people spending money on back to school, and now Halloween.  Hopefully sales will pick up for you now they're over.  Anyway, I think your beads are all terrific!
