Paper Beads….

I felt like doing … something … in the studio today, but I didn’t feel like drawing or painting, or getting the clay out….

I’ve got tons of old books and magazines, and decided to make a few paper beads.  I tore some pages out of an old French Math Book, and a book of Maps of North America, and made these in about 30 minutes.  Fun, easy, pretty…..  Maybe I’ll make a pair of earrings from them.

    Reminds me of those products from Africa that are made with magazines, etc. Decorative bowls, jewellery, etc.

    Wow, you could make mom a necklace, and if it wasn’t too time consuming, have words showing that relate to her.

    They look cute! If you find some sheet music, having musical notes on the beads would look neat.
