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.

I contacted the artist to see if she could make me some earrings like this, but longer. She was happy to do so. I love my new earrings! Shipping was the fastest I’ve ever had from over seas,so I know she got right on my order. I received them in a precious box with a nice note attached. Thanks so much!
Stunning necklace. Beautifully crafted. Delicate-looking.
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.
I wanted some small earrings to match the necklace I ordered, and Devi made them just like the ones I had pictured in my mind! The necklace and earrings came beautifully packaged in a reusable box, and I received them in the US from India in less than 3 weeks. I am extremely happy with my purchase, and will recommend this shop to anyone wanting unique jewelry! 🙂
