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.

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.
So innovative! I like the shape, color combinations, and creativity of using rolled colored paper. Thank you!
Great, hard to believe it’s made of paper! It looks like wood. So cool!
Beautiful! Got so many compliments on my earrings – shopping now for my next purchase! =)
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.
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!
