What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be patient, have a steady hand and a good pair of jewelers pliers.
I think your earrings are beautiful. I remember a couple of years back, I worked as a telephone receptionist for a travel agency that allowed me to do my crafts at work. I started making paper beads then. I think I will pick it up again. New inspiration.
I really love the gold pair, they are just lovely!
Thank you...I've been doing some custom work, and happy with the results!
I make paper beads too.
Beautiful. Artsy yet refined. Keep up the good work. I'm curious... do you use glue when you roll the beads, then lacquer, or do you use the lacquer as the glue?
I glue as I roll. I lacquer when they're done. 3 coats over 2 days so there's time to cure.
I too make paper beads & find it to be so much fun...have made many gifts for family & friends...too make ur cones.do u make a normal bead,then push it out some til it becomes a cone shape...? ur beads are beautiful
