Necklace with handmade paper pulp beads

 

This is a primitive looking beaded necklace. Usually I make my own paper pulp which I then form into beads of various shapes. For this project I used a ready mixed paper pulp which I bought from a group of teenage students. They were taking part in a school business project competition when they came up with the idea of recycling their school’s waste paper in order to make and sell ready made paper pulp. I wanted to support their efforts so I bought a packet and turned their beautiful paper pulp into beads. So now here is a necklace made from a school’s waste paper! All 27 beads are hand rolled in different shapes and sizes. I decided to leave them in their original grey colour to preserve the true character of recycled waste paper. They are varnished for protection and water resistance. I used three different varnishes, so some of the beads are glossy some of them are matt and the rest are satiny.
