Teal Stone Pendant - Paper Bead Necklace by secrets-of-the-pen Teal Stone Pendant - Paper Bead Necklace by secrets-of-the-pen
Finally getting back to making more of my Paper Bead Jewelry - and this is my first(and favorite so far!) from this new round!

You can see more pics of this piece at Etsy: [link]

I hand rolled these teal and green beads from recycled scrapbook paper and gave them three generous coats of gloss make the color pop and the beads shine. It doesn't get more handmade than this!

Oh yes! We made them in art, mine are Bob Marley colored lol. They got wet and it started to peel. So beware of water :3

That's awesome! Yeah, them and water don't mix too well! But I do seal mine pretty well with a water-resistant glaze. :D
