Cosmic Shimmer Tyvek Beads

I've always LOVED beads.  I think they were my first love other than Peanut Butter Crunch...the reason I will never have a six pack.  Making my own beads is a thrill every time I come up with a new color, design or material to use.  These Tyvek beads are so glittery, I want to use them with everything!  I grabbed Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Polish from and was able to apply the most beautiful metallic colors to the Tyvek paper before I melted them and then added even more glitter with my varnish finish. Watch the video below to see how they're made.  The result is out of this world!  Making things will make you happy, my sweet friends...I promise!  
Now get out there and Make Your Mark!
One day I'll just wear tons of these with a bright caftan and drink cocktails all day!
I chose large gold spacers, but you could use any kind of bead with them!

I love using waxed cord for my larger bead's so easy to use!
