Corner View - Green

IMG_0059IMG_0061 I know my photos aren’t green for this weeks corner view, but what if I told you that these cute bracelets and earrings were made from paper.  Yes 100 % recycled paper. 

I bought some for my daughters and myself a couple of weeks ago at a craft market.  The vendors explained that all their items for sale were made from recycled paper.  the process – recycled paper hand rolled into beads and then threaded.  the beads are then painted with lacquer.

Ingenious!

Thanks again Otli for hosting CV.

I believe this falls into green. I love the jewelry. Isn't amazing how people can create yesterdays news into art?! xo

They are beautiful. I saw instructions on how to make paper beads, but I had no idea they'd turn out so lovely. And I love the idea of using recycling paper.
