Triple Strand Bracelet with Matching Earrings

Okay, isn't this set a beauty?  I LOVE IT.  Was going to be a gift but I love it so much I have decided to gift it to  myself. 
Do you know what is so very special about this little gem?

The large beads are made from PAPER yes I used W R Memory Keepers Merry January 12 by 12 dp 
to make these beads.  They are strung on a wire with crystals.  The triple chain was a huge challenge I  sat it aside and walked away on a few occasions.  I loved it so much I kept going back and giving it another try.

Thanks to my Sister for a huge donation of beading supplies the girls and I have been stringing crazy the past few weeks.  We have some gifts ready for your stash as well;)

Here is a quick video on making paper beads.  I did the later technique and when finished I coated the paper beads with diamond Glaze and let dry.

If you live in my area R Scrapbook store does have this collection in stock;)

Happy Stamp Day.
May God Bless our Country and the World.
