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.

Beautiful, I ordered several pair for gifts. It takes a little longer because they are beautifully hand crafted to perfection. The artist treats each order with a personal touch. I highly recommend. Her earrings look like metal but are made of metallic paper and are lightweight and comfortable, five star for sure.
Love it, got all three pieces and it looks wonderful. It feels great, light and looks so organic and beautiful definitely my favorite earrings yet. Excellent service by Devi.
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 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 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.
Love to wear these all the time. Seller was so gracious and generous with me and throughout our transaction – I’m happy to support her work! They are well made and go with everything!
