sterling silver, elastic; Kathleen Faulkner
Paper beads became popular in Victorian times. Women in England would get together and make beads by rolling wallpaper on knitting needles. They would then string the beads on long pieces of yarn to use as room dividers.
As a child I would make paper beads for bracelets and necklaces. When thinking about what I would do for this show, I remembered those paper beads I used to make and thought it would be fun to revisit.
