Paper Beads

This week I felt like trying new materials. I chose paper. Paper in the form of advertising junk mail and catalogs arriving unsolicited at our homes and ending up on the trash heap. Along with tons of unnecessary rubbish.

Well, I started rolling paper beads like we used to do in kindergarten. Then I found by Janice Mae and one of her tutorials How to: Make Round Paper Beads and I was amazed by the variety of paper beads. I am also quite enthusiastic about I Love Paper Beads and about Mzuribeads from Uganda.

Actually it’s quite easy to make paper beads, however it takes time and then paper does not equal paper …
