The new year is around the corner. I’m weighing what is next for my recycled paper beads. As I have said before, there are a lot of more important things in this world than recycling some paper each year. But this is something I enjoy. The creative aspect and thinking through a project is good for me. (And I hope you.)
A fairly large map was in one of the magazines my Dad gave me. There is a lot of black. I’m considering making many black beads of different styles. One issue is making a bead in black can go wrong so easily. I simply can’t always see the lines as I put the thin, black paper on a toothpick.
I look at this paper and see so much potential. I also see questions. Will I be able to create something unique? Will anyone be wearing this paper in the next year? How much time will it take to make interesting (dare I say beautiful) beads from such a large piece of black paper? And the true ultimate question for all of us, What Will 2012 Bring?
