The sea anemone cocktail ring tutorial from Paper Beads is perfect for those who already like big, fun and funky cha-cha rings. The video tutorial shows the different types of ring blanks you can use for this project. Wire wrapping at the base makes the spikes stand up.
The ring will look great with different colored paper beads. Make them smaller if you don't like such high rings or even substitute with glass beads if paper beads are not your thing.
When I saw Diane Gilleland's recycled magazine pendant tutorial, the first thing that popped in my mind was sushi! Her method of rolling paper to form coils is simple and yet effective. There are plenty of design options.
If you check out the tutorial, you will see other pictures of how you can put several together to build up a multi-coiled bib style necklace. Or you could even do separate coils within the main outer coil - the heart one in their reader gallery at the bottom of the post is superb.
I will cross reference these tutorials in my past post how to make paper beads and jewelry. All back tutorial posts can be found in my hub page Jewelry Making Tips.
