2ndhandpaper jewelry at Plymouth Art Show, Saturday Oct. 1, 2011

Hi, my name is Monique MacIntosh.  I am a new artist at the Coop.  I make beads out of paper that I would otherwise recycle and send to the dump.

I make my beads by cutting paper into strips, rolling the strips, and finishing the bead using water-based glue and lacquer.

I then string the paper beads with bone, glass, metal, pearl, seed, semi-precious stone and wood beads to create unique and interesting jewelry.

On Saturday, Oct. 1st, as part of the Plymouth Art Show, I will be making my paper beads at Artistic Roots.   Come join me and learn how to make rolled paper beads.  I plan to be there from 11am to 2pm.
