Paper Bead Ring

Okay, so, this friend of mine (don't worry Jennie, I won't mention any names) suggests I make a wire wrapped ring using a paper bead. Well, I can't wire wrap to save my life, but I'll try. Um, maybe my hubby will help!
This is the result:

Pretty cool, huh? I had nothing to do with it, my hubby made it! When I asked if he'd make me another one, he ran from the room. *sigh*

Featured Seller!

I purchased this doll last year and just love it! She is just the cutest. I found her on Etsy at Stop by and check out some of her siblings! She's shown here with a paper bead necklace I made and included lava beads. She's known as Badder Than Bad and I can see why! I made her the necklace she is wearing.
I must warn you, the descriptions are so funny, don't drink coffee while reading them! Here's another one:
This is Mean Sissy! Her description reads: She's a big sister. She hugs her little brother really, really hard. Sometimes she holds his little hand so tightly his knuckles pop. What can she say? Sometimes love hurts.
Stop by this shop! It's well worth the visit!

More Paper Beads!

I made these from scrapbook paper called "Text Message". The words are pretty cool! Almost like an eyeball bender. I really had to look at some of them to figure out what they said.

Pencil Beads

These are fun beads! I had this paper for some time and wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it, then this came to me. You can make the pencil larger by adding center pieces to the eraser and point end. These would be great as earrings, too. One side the eraser and the other side the pencil point.

Dog toys

Do you think dogs plan these things out? I swear mine have a sense of humor! I woke up to this and am just not sure what to think about it! Is the cow modest? Copping a feel? He sure has a smile on his face.

Sunday Comic Paper Beads

I made these beads from the Sunday comics. I usually do the comics in oblong shapes but decided to try this shape and they are great! I heavily coat these so they look and feel like porcelain. And a lot of things showed up on these such as, Snoopy, Garfield, bunny slippers, Linus and more! I had a hard time parting with these, but I did end up listing them on Etsy.

Click on the photos to enlarge them and see close up what you can see on them!

New for 2009

These are the Patriotic Blue paper beads I added to Etsy this evening. Wire wrapped with gold, silver and copper wire, they would be great focal beads. Listed with others that are not wire wrapped and some oblong beads.

These are two new styles. Pillow on the left and 3 step on the right. Made from wallpaper, these paper beads come out really nice! I am pleased with how they worked up.
