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.

I was so excited to open this beautiful package with lovely stamps from India. The packaging was as meticulously crafted as the necklace itself. The photos are accurate to what I received- I wish I had measured myself and requested an inch of the length to be taken off. I wouldn’t dare do it now because I love the delicate fastener. I’m seriously considering the earrings now.
Super funky and cool! Makes a great gift – but decided to keep them for myself! Will order more from this maker!
My friend loved these! Said they were gorgeous in person and well made!
The necklace and earrings are so beautiful and well made. No one would ever guess that it’s made of paper, but I plan to tell everyone – It’s so cool! They came beautifully packaged in a reusable box. I will recommend this shop to anyone wanting unique jewelry! 🙂
Beautiful earrings! Vibrant & more colorful in person-I just really love these!
The necklace is exactly what I was looking for in a first anniversary present for my wife. That the seller can create something so beautiful (and sturdy) out of paper is amazing. The seller was also extremely communicative and attentive. Highly recommended.
