The idea and the beautiful photos of this necklace belong to Bilyana Getzova. You can look through her pictures of various handmade things and paper collages for kids. I was so excited when I saw the whole album. Bilyana told me she didn’t even make drawings – she just cut the paper freehand. She’s unbelievable!

Well, KROKOTAK made a bracelet to match the necklace – and we even tried to use the same colors 🙂
To make one yourself, you will need colored paper scraps which you should cut into tapered isosceles triangles. Make sure the bases are equally wide. Put a little glue at the top. Start rolling them on a pencil or a paintbrush.
String the paper beads on a thin elastic string. You should thread the string from both ends of each paper bead (see picture).
