Paper Barrel Beaded Necklace
by Joybelle Malcolm.
Recently I have become curious with the art of quilling especially since I love making jewelry out of paper.
I took the paper strips, joined 4-5 strips and rolled using a standard paper bead roller.
I then used the tip of a school glue bottle to slowly push the center of the coiled paper to create a dome. They have special quilling tools to do this and other amazing things, but I made do with what I had (smile).
After that I glued the inside/outside for stability, then clear nail polish for sheen.
Although they looked awesome (to me), I was not satisfied, so I glued two domes together and loved the outcome…
My love for creating paper beads reigns/rocks! The possibilities are endless…
