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 wanted to buy something “different” for a gift to my wife for our 1st wedding anniversary and this certainly did the trick – everything from the handwritten addressed packaging to the hand-made unique necklace – I would certainly recommend this shop.
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!
I have to say this is my favorite shop. When I received it and opened it was like I have gotten a gift from a friend, on a gift box with a nice ribbon and a card with my name. It felt so nice to know that someone takes their time to actually put in so much love and thoughts in just the little things. The necklace itself looks as beautiful as in the picture. I also purchased the matching ring and earrings.
The earrings are my love!They are so cosy and warm – match any outfit!
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.
Beautiful! Got so many compliments on my earrings – shopping now for my next purchase! =)
