Paper Bead Necklace

Not so long ago i took part in a paper bead swap, i had great fun making the beads but the ones i received in return had been sat for a while wondering what they might become... well i finally had a light bulb moment and decided to create a simple necklace with some of them.

I threaded a black seed bead followed by a silver spacer, then a black round bead and then the paper bead onto a flat head pin and followed that with the same combination in reverse to keep each pin symmetrical, i then looped the end and added a small jump ring to hang.
I did this with 5 beads.
Threaded all onto a black faux swede thread of which i had added a twist clasp to close.
And Ta Da.. one simple necklace!

Stampboard Magnet Swap

Over at UK Stampers i have joined in with a magnet swap run by Louise

I used 2 bits of stampboard, a 2x2 piece and a 1x2 piece connected with a couple of mini keyring loops.
I coloured each piece using Kuratake alcohol inks, and a spritz of poppy glimmer mist.
Stamped the image and quote, left to dry and then coated the whole thing in crackle glaze, once that was dry i applied some white ink to highlight the cracks.
I finished by adding the magnet on the back
and he's the pic to prove it's now a magnet... lol

I hope whoever recieves it likes what i have created.
Thanks Louise for hosting this great swap x
