Many places have paper beads for sale. Would you rather buy or make your own?
I’ve been thinking about that lately. It takes me so long to make properly coated and matching beads that I wonder if I am wasting my time. Since I use my beads mainly for earrings, I lean toward making my own. For one thing, I’m “crazy” enough to believe if I am going to make jewelry with my beads, then I will make the best beads. (I know, it’s probably not true, but allow me some pride.) Secondly choosing paper and wrapping the beads allows me to think through what I may want to create. I begin to feel the excitement of all of the possibilities.
My thought today is I will continue to make beads. I wonder if I’ll change my mind in the future…..
Keep making (or buying) those paper beads.
