Announcement   Hello! Welcome to thepaperbeadery! I hope you like what you see! I love the idea of mixing colors, textures, shapes, and sizes to make a dynamic, versatile, and completely unique piece of jewelry! As the mom of two young kids, I tend to dress rather basic these days-jeans and t shirts make up the bulk of my wardrobe. But one thing that keeps me feeling chic, fresh, and pulled together is an awesome necklace! These handmade necklaces are super lightweight as well! You get all the bulk of a statement piece of jewelry without the weight around your neck! A win win!

If you are looking to custom order a necklace with a specific set of colors or would like to order a larger quantity for a wedding gift, please message me and I would love to work something out!

These necklaces also make for fantastic gifts for any woman in your life-mom, sister, daughter, cousin, aunt, friend, or grandma!

Enjoy!

About

Handmade, rolled paper bead necklaces mixed with a variety of beads to create a beautiful, one of a kind, statement necklace.

I started my love for rolling beads a few years ago when my mom asked me if I would make a necklace for her for my sister's wedding. She said she wanted it to make a "statement". A statement it made, but it also cost a fortune and weighed a ton. I knew there had to be a cheaper and lighter way to make statement necklaces! Solution-paper beads!

I find that now that people know my love for paper-they are more than willing to give me their old stacks of paper! I Love any paper that has tons of color, various patterns, and even prints. You never really know how a bead will turn out until it is rolled! I keep my eyes open for the combining beads-wood, acrylic, glass, gold, silver, or ceramic. I have found some awesome beads at farmer's markets, trade shows, or even antique shops. Every necklace has a back story on where the beads came from!

The putting together of the necklace is where my artsy fartsy side can come out! I sometimes think of it as remodeling a room, without all the dust! I see what colors go together, what patterns work, the style I want the necklace to be, and so on. If I don't "feel" the necklace and would want to actually wear it myself, I start over!

I sort of fall in love with every necklace I make and am happy/sad when they are purchased-sad knowing that I have to say goodbye, but so happy knowing that someone will treasure it as much as I did when I made it!

    I am a part time Pilates Instructor, full time momma of two sweet kids, and have a deep love for rolling paper beads! I love the idea of repurposing items-whether it be an old table or an out of style necklace-both can be turned into something new!
