I got down to some hardcore bead making this weekend, starting on Friday. I have managed to get approximately 120 beads finished (well almost ... just waiting for the varnish to set on one last batch.) I do love making paper beads, but they are terribly time consuming; very labour intensive. However to see all those little 'jewels' when they are finished gives me tremendous satisfaction. You can find my range of beads for sale in my Etsy shop ArtBeatriceM . Here's me in the studio surrounded by the lovely beads all waiting to be varnished.
