Hourglass Paper Beads

I've finally realized that if I want to be better about updating this blog regularly, I should stop worrying so much about writing profound things and focus more on putting up pictures of my beads. I suspect that's what most of my readers are looking for anyway!

(Excuse my occasional foray back into deep thoughts, though--I am what I am!)

I made these beads a while ago but hadn't ever posted a picture. This paper was half and half found/painted. It was scrapbook paper that I added color to; the background was originally white. I cut these strips in 3/4 inch rectangles, then cut long triangles out of the rectangles to leave two separate strips for rolling. I love making paper beads in unusual shapes.
