5 handmade paper beads made from recycled Ordnance Survey maps coated with ultra thick embossing enamel and tipped with gold embossing powder. Each one shows a small part of Britain - streets, roads, countryside, woods and topography. Each is unique and guaranteed to be a little different for your craft projects. Beads have a 2mm wide hole and are 1 inch (roughly 2.5cm) long and just over a quarter inch (6mm) thick. Ideal for jewellery making or adding as embellishments to cards, scrapbooks, memory albums, brag books, journals, fibre art, etc.

Each batch is made fresh and just for you so you will not get the exact beads in the photo. There may be some variation in the map patterns as each bead depends on what maps I have available. However, every attempt is made to make the beads as like to the ones shown here as possible and each bead is checked for quality before I send them out.

Please note: these beads are made from paper with a thin plastic coating. I do my best to produce a quality product that will last with reasonable use and have jewellery, journals and bookmarks decorated with beads that I made many years ago. However the beads will not survive total immersion in water or extreme violence, e.g. being stood on or thrown against a wall. With a little tender loving care and respect your beads should last for many years.
