Blue Paper Bead Bracelet

It has been awhile since I made any beads. I chose a dark blue marble paper. The beads are 1/4 inch wide. Quarter inch wide beads have become my favorite. My consistency still needs work. Practice. Practice. Practice.

I was excited to get back into the swing of things after my new tools arrived.  I bought this 16 piece Wisehands Jewelry Making Tool Kit. Since I am now equipped with more tools then I probably need, I decided to try and up my jewelry game by using wire.

Wire is harder to work with than I thought. Before I try to work with it again, I am going to have to do some research on tips and tricks. It bent out of shape very easily. Once out of shape, it was impossible to smooth out.

Luckily the beads cover a good bit of the warped wire. Once the beads are over the wire there is an illusion of straightness.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day. If you are able to, hug your mother. My husband wishes his was still with us so he could hug her.

  2. How pretty and clever! I’ve never tried to make any kind of jewellery. I did try a craft project recently that used wire and it was really hard to work with – I was surprised how hard it was to straighten back out too! #anythinggoes
