The jewelry is finished but it still needs to be photographed. This week I'm taking it easy on my hands after making some chains from scratch. The chains are beautiful but it isn't the easiest thing to do and is painful. Right now I'm working on an idea for making paper love beads. This will be a recycling project to get rid of paper bits from previous projects. Each bead will be made of a different paper and shaped from paper bits without cutting them first. Freeform beads! I will also go through wire bits and odd seed beads to decorate the love beads. I may also try forming beads from aluminum scraps from a diecut jewelry project. Right now I need a nap!
