Welcome to my second instructable.
Banded beads are usually made of ceramic or stone. The one shown here are of acetate sheet and paper.
One of my best friend's birthday was round the corner. She loves banded beads. Unfortunately I didn't have time to go to the market and buy banded beads for her! So I made them in about 5 minutes as a gift.
