I had a big collection of necklaces “back in the day.” Now I really only bust them out for special occasions, and so I like to have something that coordinates with my attire. These paper mache beads by Diana at Confessions of a Craftaholic are perfect for customizing to your heart’s content. The best part is that you can make them out of newspaper, which means you can have a pretty necklace made from rooting around in a garbage can. I love that. Please visit Diana’s tutorial here; the color and shape of the beads is up to you.
