Paper Beads

This new necklace is made with paper beads, along with some glass black and white beads wire wrapped onto the paper beads. About a year ago, a friend of mine, Rise, whom I used to work with at Project SEED, when we lived in Dallas from 1996 - 2001 , told me about a friend of hers who used to make jewelry from paper beads. Rise showed me how to make them. Then, I did a little research and my friend Mary in Chicago gave me a book on making jewelry from paper. I made some paper beads from magazine pages. The ads in the magazines make beautiful beads! This necklace hangs on an 18" black leather cord. You can see it and more of my beaded jewelry at my new "store" on Etsy at www.neeneeandcheechee.etsy.com
