And then they were bracelets

I searched for a project to do with my cute little beads that I've been showing off in my previous post. I did some white-and-gold ones too, which I thought would look great with the red ones I did. But I didn't want to just string them and be done with it.

Thankfully, there is always Paper Beads for inspiration. Two weeks ago Janice posted this tutorial and here are my results:

I'm not too sure about this one. I reallllyy liked the multi-coloured beads when they were just on the string of elastic cord I had them on. I kept looking at them, wondering what to do with them, because I loved them so much. I'm not sure if the blue is the right blue. But then again, maybe it will just take a bit of getting used to. At least they are great with jeans now!

This one I think came out best of all. I normally don't care for gold that much, but I think it works here.

I really like the pattern and will be making more of these. At least a green one, maybe a green and white one, and who knows what other colours. As they say: watch this space!


  1. I love how those paper beads look!! So pretty! :)

  2. Thank you! I'm planning on making tons more!
