One-of-a-kind paper beads in purple and multi colours, handcrafted using recycled cereal boxes. One strand of 12 beads
Although I craft my beads mostly from premium papers using digital or hand painted designs, I also love the surprising results I get when I use recycled cardboard packaging (cereal boxes, facial tissue boxes, beverage packaging), or glossy magazines, wrapping paper, calendars, posters and menus.
After carefully measuring, cutting and rolling each bead, they get two applications of a laminate base coat followed by three coats of Paper Bead Glaze that produces a shiny long-lasting glass-like finish.
These beads are water resistant but are not water proof.
*Colours, shapes and sizes may vary due to the nature of handmade items. I strive to edit and display the colours in the photos as accurately as possible, but please understand that due to the inconsistencies of display monitors, the actual colours may vary slightly.
Each bead approximate size: Bead hole: 2mm Various sizes: 19mm (3/4"), 12mm (1/2"), and 9mm (3/8")
