Folk Amalgam Earrings
These charming pair of folk inspired earrings are composed of paper beads made from an exciting stash of recycled paper bags.
Over the years, I’ve passionately collected paper bags in a vibrant range of colors and textures. It gives me immense joy to give them a second life, this time as a thoughtful piece of jewelry. Each bead used in the earrings is uniquely handcrafted from a different paper bag. No two beads are alike.
The beads are made by meticulously rolling recycled paper into beads of different shapes and sizes. They are then given a coat of sealant to make them water resistant.
The paper beads are strung through a black waxed cotton cord. The necklace length can be adjusted with the little wooden bead.
My jewelry making process is incredibly time consuming and tedious, however, the final result always makes me smile. I hope it brings you the same joy 🙂
Dangles – 1.5 inch (3.8 cm) long and 0.6 inch (1.5 cm) wide
Earring length (including ear wires) – 2 inches (5 cm)

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.

Love these earrings! They come in the cutest box. The seller communicates very well, which helps a lot!
I have ordered many pair of earrings from this shop – some for myself and quite a few as gifts. EVERY pair of them is BEAUTIFUL. The craftsmanship ( the craftsWOmanship!) is AMAZING. The creativity, color and shapes are sooooo unique. The shop owner is so lovely -and so attuned to detail – even the packaging is beautiful! I wore these particular earrings this week and got SOOOOO many compliments. I am so glad I found this shop.
This is a really neat pendant. Got it as a birthday gift for my niece. I think she’ll love it. Very well made and sent in a cute gift box. Packaged well and arrived in perfect condition. It only took 15 days to get from India to the east coast of the US. I don’t think that is bad at all. It is also nice that this is an adjustable necklace. Very unique!!
Beautiful! Got so many compliments on my earrings – shopping now for my next purchase! =)
I just love those earrings! I have received many compliments and I can’t stop wearing them! Thank you very much!
Fabulous recycled earrings, nicely packaged. These are so versatile, I can wear them with anything. Thank you! I love them!
