These are not your ordinary paper beads! My newest textured paper beads are highly texturized, very glossy and colorful giving them the look of Raku! I created these last night by first making a paper barrel bead, then I layered each bead with more paper and several coats of Mod Podge. Next, I embossed the beads to create more dimension and striking colors. Finally, I sealed the beads with a high gloss protectant creating a paper bead that appears to be very heavy but is actually extremely lightweight. New bracelets coming soon to my Etsy shop. Check back on my blog as I will announce when these embossed paper bead bracelets are available for purchase!
