Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

About this design:

This piece is inspired by some recycled paper cord that I found. I paired it with recycled glass beads and scrap metal pieces. I was inspired by nancykathryn's crochet pieces to see if I could make a course chain with the paper cord. It is surprising comfortable.

    Thanks! I was a little concerned it might be too ‘out there,’ however, since I thought it was cool I decided to post it to see what other’s thought about the design.
