What advice would you give someone starting this project? Paper beads are tricky to "dress up." Ones with more color are easier to work with.

Aren't you clever? Paper beads are so much fun to make. Like the way you oriented them on the horizontal. Nice change.

In talking with my friend about her tastes in earrings, she mentioned avoiding dangly ones because she has a long thin face. Hence the horizontal orientation.

How did you make the paper bead?

05/17/2012 Flag

I didn't make them. They were made by women in Ethiopia.
