After some thought, I believe I make five different shaped paper beads. I don’t know the official names, but here they are:
With my own names: Back row: roll, round, saucer; Front row: cone and….traditional. If you are new to paper beading, this picture may help you decide what works best for you. The first question is, “How do you plan to use them after they are complete?”
There are more bead shapes that I have never attempted. Before experimenting, I’ll ask myself the same question as above. Will my jewelry style work well with the new shape? I’ll keep you in-the-loop.
