Faux Turquoise Necklace (using old magazines)

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!
