So, today is the last of the posts about the Highlands Festival. While walking around, I saw a booth where a woman was making paper beads, and making necklaces out of those beads. I talked to her for a few minutes, and she did a quick demonstration of the technique. I've seen instructions for making paper beads before, but have never gotten around to trying it. She made a bead in no time flat, and the beads she made were from old magazines. It's amazing how pretty they turned out. I bought this necklace:
If you look closely, you can see the print from the paper on the beads. Very cool! I may have to give this a try sooner than later!
