Makar Sankranti Earrings
Makar Sankranti is an Indian harvest festival dedicated to the Hindu sun god, Surya.
This unique long pair of earrings is made of paper beads that I lovingly handcrafted from craft paper. The earrings represent the rays of the sun. The earrings have a scarlet red center (made of strong cardboard) with golden beads emerging from it.
The dangles hang from naturally oxidized sterling silver ear wires.
The earrings are light weight and very comfortable to wear.
Dangle length – 2.4 inch (6 cm)
Dangle width – 0.25 inch (0.6 cm)
Earring length including the ear wires – 3 inches (7.5 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 here.

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! 🙂
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! 🙂
Beautiful!! I am delighted with both pairs of earrings, Devi. They looked unusual and very carefully made even from looking at the photos, but now that they have arrived I see that they are absolute treasures. Thank you so much! n nStephanie
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.
This necklace is wonderful,I love the colors and shape.and it arrived fast, nicely packaged.Thank you, Annelies.
The earrings are my love!They are so cosy and warm – match any outfit!
