PAPER BEADS EARRING AND NECKLACE

Hello friends, Today am going to share with you the tutorial of making paper beads chain and necklace. I wanted to make this tutorial for a  long time , but today only got the opportunity to do so. Paper beads are very simple to make but looks elegant to wear.




TO MAKE PAPER BEADS:

MATERIALS NEEDED:



  1. A4  sheet paper 
  2. markers
  3. toothpick
  4. glue
PROCEDURE:


 Initially take the A4 sheet and mark every half inch on both sides. Draw a line joining one corner and opposite half inch mark. Similarly draw lines for every other points. 

The lines look like this.





Cut the strips.

Using markers outline the strips with the colour of your choice. I used red and black colours.





Take a tooth pick and start rolling from the broader end of the strip. Apply glue at the end of the strip.


 This is how the beads looks like after rolling.


Make as many beads you want. For this chain i used 30 beads. And for making these 30 beads one A4 sheet is enough.


Slide two or three beads through the tooth pick and apply varnish. I applied three coats of varnish to get the shine.

TO MAKE THE CHAIN:
MATERIALS NEEDED:
  1. Paper bead
  2. Small golden balls
  3. Plier and cutter
  4. jewelry wire



PROCEDURE:

Take the jewelry wire of required length and insert two paper beads. Then add a golden ball. Similarly insert all the paper beads to form a chain. In the end you can add hook or simply knot two ends together if it is a bigger chain .




TO MAKE THE EARRING:
MATERIALS NEEDED:


PROCEDURE:
Cut the floral wire of required length and make a loop using pliers. Insert beads and pearls and make another loop at the bottom. On one end add the earring hooks and on the other end add small white beads. 





This is such an easy project that you can do the paper beads even while watching tv or travelling. Enjoy making your own jewellery. Do Leave me your suggestions and feedback. 

Happy Crafting!!!
