    Thanks, everyone! I’m having so much fun making all of these beads, I made about beads 100 over the weekend! This was my first experiment with the Origami paper (this was my test project and my least favorite paper in the pack). It does look like cloisonne! I’m working on another Origami paper bead set that I should have done by the weekend and I really love the way those beads are turning out!
