My creative space today - Colliers de papiers

Recently I am working on some new eco-friendly necklaces :-)
The eco friendly part is the fact thath I use paper beads, made from old magazines.

I seal the paperbeads with two coats of varnish to make them sturdier and keep them free of dust and dirt, and to make them more water-resistant (not water-PROOF).
I combine them with the felted pebbles (that I love so much to make) and in this case with beautiful amethyst stones.
Well, they have to wait a bit on my workdesk today, because I am off supply shopping in this tempting shop. Antwerp here I come :-))

In the last pictures you see an already finished necklace. find more pics on my Flickr account.
