I have a feeling that most paper beaders and paper recyclers love paper. I am one of them. Unfortunately, when I am in a scrapbook store, I see all of that potential and want to buy!
I don’t. Not for my earrings anyway. My unspoken decision was to make jewelry from paper that is being recycled or repurposed. If I buy paper specifically for jewelry, then I am not keeping with my goal of recycling.
To turn my back on some of the paper I saw the other day was difficult…..but I did it! Today I am safely back to using the paper I already have.
Keep Making those Beads.
