60 Inch necklace!

That 60 inch necklace I said I wanted to make? I finally did it.

The paper beads are made of black wrapping paper with silver stars on it that my sister used for our Christmas presents. I combined them with glass beads and see-through seed beads.

Now all I need is a party to go to so I can show this necklace off!


  1. That is just so gorgeous!
    What sort of triangle are you cutting your paper into to get that almost rounded shape? Mine are turning out really long and tubular - almost like bugle beads. I'd love to get a more rounded shape.

  2. You need a looongggg strip of paper. Mine start off at about 1/4 inch and then about 14 or 16 inches long. Happy rolling!

  3. It is beautiful! I used to make beads like that as a kid...but mine didn't look anything like those! LOL It's gorgeous and I hope you find that party soon!
