Mail Art: Hand Made Paper Beads

Paper Beads

Augusts Art Swap was to make paper beads. We could choose how many swaps, each swap being 20 beads. I have never made beads before and it was relativity easy.

I randomly hand painted some A4 sheets of paper, painting the opposite way to how the beads are rolled (Photos No. 1 – 3).  I also made some from magazine pages (Photo No. 4). I played around making different shapes and decorated some with colourful threads and paua shells.

These beads can used in art journaling or to decorate gift tags.
