Manjadikuru Earrings – Cardboard jewelry – First wedding anniversary gift
Manjadikuru are the magical seeds from India, known as Circassian seeds in U.S & Britain and Jumbie beads in the Caribbean. Ever since I was a kid, I have been an obsessive collector of these beautiful bright red seeds, showering down from hundreds of dried pods from the manjadi tree, which is the “good luck tree” of India. They are soooo beautiful, that I couldn’t resist using them in my jewelry any more 🙂
These rustic pair of earrings are made from strong sturdy recycled cardboard and hand painted. At the focus is the Circassian seed. The dangles hand from naturally oxidized sterling silver ear wires.
The earrings measure a little over 1.25 inches (3.3 cm) long including the ear wires.
The paper beads are protected using a sealant which allows the jewelry to be sweat and splash proof. However, they should not be immersed in water. Read detailed care instructions here.
All items will arrive in beautiful handcrafted gift boxes, ready for gift giving.
