Paisley Beads

About this activity
Australian artist Jemima Wyman is fascinated by the history of different patterns — how patterns can express who we are and where we live, and transform our view of the world. In this activity, you can use paisley patterns to create your own paper bead necklace.

A paisley pattern is made up of teardrop shapes. Many things in nature – like vegetables, flowers and plants have a paisley shape.
