Round Paper Beads

I'm thrilled with this necklace I just finished. First, beacause I finally figured out how to make round paper beads! Also because I love the combination of white, black and silver. It looks so elegant.

I made the round paper beads by rolling strips of scrapbook paper that were 3/8 of an inch wide and 18 inches long. I strung them with silver bead caps and black seed beads on elastic. I like to use elastic because this way the necklace can either be worn as a long single strand, or looped twice for a double strand choker. I can also wear it as a chunky, four strand bracelet.
