Q&A with SaturdaySails

variadee asked:
Aren't you clever? Paper beads are so much fun to make. Like the way you oriented them on the horizontal. Nice change.
SaturdaySails answered:
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.
JJDeb asked:
How did you make the paper bead?
SaturdaySails answered:
I didn't make them. They were made by women in Ethiopia.
