Folk Amalgam Necklace
This vibrant folk inspired necklace is 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 necklace 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 🙂
The necklace is adjustable with a maximum length of 30 inches.

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.

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!!
Everything is wonderful, perfect, beautiful… OH OH OH YOUR WORK IS JUST THE BEST. I am soooooo glad I found you. Thank you soooooooo much!!!
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 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.
Perfect! These earrings are beautiful. awesome craftsmanship…exactly what I wanted and expected.
Awesome earrings! They are simple yet quite elegant I bought several because I couldn’t decide on one color. I love them all! Thanks, Amy.
