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.
