Junk mail jewelry

A few months ago I became obsessed with making paper beads.  It started as a challenge to myself about recycling grocery paper bags.  I added junk mail to my pile of paper to recycle, old calendars, magazine pages, music sheets.  I was on a roll, rolling paper beads.

On November 1 the new issue of GreenCraft is hitting the stands and in it you can read more about my paper bead journey.

Also check out my class on Skillshare about paper beads.

I have made so many of these colorful beauties that you can also purchase in my Etsy store.
