Paper bead bracelet.

Once I got started I couldn't stop. For now all the beads are one shape but you can make different shaped beads. I think I'll just stick to these though.

I used metal spacer beads in between each of the paper beads.

The left is the scrapbook paper that I used to make the beads. I really like the way this one turned out.


After you're done rolling the bead you glue the end down. Then the bead gets rolled in embossing ink and then covered in embossing powder. It's then heated to melt the embossing powder creating a hard shiny surface on the bead.

Oh my GOSH!!! This one is beautiful!! If you make several of these for the craft show, you could sell them for a lot, and make tons of money!!! People love designer one of a kind jewelry.

Shucks- we used to just varnish them. I guess the modern equivalent would by polyurethane.
