I always get excited when raw materials bought from me ends up in creative hands. It's a good feeling to see how other artists made use of the once lonely beads and turned them into a one of a kind jewelry piece.
Lisa of ElainaLouiseStudios is one talented artist. Who would have thought that a simple wire-wrapped Chinese character paper bead scroll could be transformed into a unique necklace that embodies both time and place influenced by the East.
The Chinese Paper Bead scrolls came from pages of a vintage Buddhist prayer pamphlets. I have loads of these and other Chinese newsprint published in the 1940’s- 1970’s.
