One day I hope to create beads that are spectacular. Beads worthy of being pinned up on Pinterest. Beads worthy of being strung together and worn.

I am still learning and this batch taught me a lot. For one, nail polish can be used to add color to the paper. Most of the tutorials I have watched used markers. I also learned that sometimes black paper is not true black paper.

The black cardstock that I used had a white center that can be seen on the cut edges. I might try to do them again without the silver and see how that looks.

Black and silver is one of my favorite color combinations. What colors do you like together?
