I'm always fidgeting...ALWAYS! Even when I'm watching TV I have to be doing something with my hands. I found that making these paper beads is the perfect way to keep my hands busy and because I love using them in projects, it's just a win win situation! Coming from the midwest I have always loved big, chunky turquoise jewelry and being able to make a version of it brings me much joy! The best part about this project is that I can use up my old magazines. A little paint and glue and you'll have some amazing gifts to give friends for the holidays. The average person spends 4 hours in front of the television per day...Just think how many beads you can make in a week! Upcycle, recycle, reuse and make fun jewelry...Oh, and always MAKE YOUR MARK!
Stacked and ready to make a statement!
They look amazing on my friend Deirdra!
