Combining paper and glass for handmade jewelry

   I’ve had a collection of paper beads just sitting to the side of my workspace. I decided it was time to do something with them before I made more. 
   As you can see, I had a variety of colors. I decided to string them with glass beads to make a multi-color necklace. Since I had some paper beads left over I went ahead and made a stretchy bracelet too.

   I alternated paper beads and glass beads for these pieces. I am thinking the necklace can be worn long, or folded in half and clasped together to make a two-strand choker.
