Having a comment on a post some time ago asking to make something with african paper beads, it was time to try it. Using basic crafting materials that can be easily found in any crafting room and inspired by the black color, I made my first attempt on paper beads with a necklace and matching earrings.

A stamp, one only Memento ink pad and a A4 page were enough to craft the main pieces of the jewelry.

To protect and make the paper beads durable, a layer of GlazOn worked well and gave some shine to the beads.
