a spotlight on the work table:
paper beads

This is a spotlight on one of the several things I've been working on.
Paper Beads, are one of my favorite things to make.
I have been making these since forever....
and I'm slowing cooking up several new batches for 
a new online jewelry class I'm working on.

The supplies are simple. ordinary. 
The process is super easy.

The colors can be blinding, neon, bold and totally 1983, or muted, 
speckled with just a hint of color.

The texture is rough, warped, yet smooth....each one-of-a-kind. 
Like a gold nugget, a marble, an eye.
