"I’m intrigued with tiny paper beads rolled from pages torn from books or magazines. The technique is rather standard, but the finished look varies greatly depending on the medium and the colors. For example, the first paper beads I created were made from pages torn from a Restoration Hardware catalog. With such muted colors, they looked a bit like seashells. Then I made these from paint color strips. Once the beads are made, your options are endless. Transform them into earrings, bracelets or necklaces. And remember, the best way to learn is just to do it. With practice comes perfection."
