This necklace is made entirely of paper and thread...sheets of paper that separated stacks of sugar bags in supermarkets...one of the lads who worked in Sainsbury's (other supermarkets are available:)))) used to save the sheets for me.....this is not one of mine...mine are not as good as this one:)))

A marvellous one Barbara !! It also shows that a lot of "scraps" may be transformed into lovely or even useful new objects !! At the time my son bought a little suitcase made in Africa with the red cans of Coca-Cola!! ;°)

Who would have thought something so elegant could be made from these materials!
Wonderful choice for entry.

Thanks Margaret....I have made a few, but I still have a huge box of 'sugar' papers to use...I need to live to be at least 150 to use all these things up!
