I really like the colourful safety pins bracelet!
I find it more interesting with the safety pins than the paper bead bracelet where the paper beads are hold together from elastic alone.
Making paper beads really is simple, especially if you use a (self-made) paper beads roller.
You can even give the paper beads a slightly different form if you like to or make the beads from fabric.
However, it’ll be an interesting and beautiful item ;-)
A propos: If the style of the bracelet seems familiar look here ;-)
