Makar Sankranti Necklace
Makar Sankranti is an Indian harvest festival dedicated to the Hindu sun god, Surya.
This unique sun pendant necklace is made of paper beads that I lovingly handcrafted from craft paper. The sun has a scarlet red centre with a golden spiral (made of strong cardboard), and golden rays (made of paper beads) . The sun pendant is attached to a string of golden paper beads, adding to the richness and elegance.
The necklace has a naturally oxidized sterling silver hook for closure.
The sun pendant has a diameter of 2.5 inches(6.3 cm). The necklace measures 16 inches (41 cm) long.

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.

I recently bought these earrings. It is really so hard to believe that they are created out of paper waste given its flawless finish and design😍😍😍. A big shout- out to the founder of Papermelon, Devi Chand, who single-handedly created this beautiful piece👏👏👏.
I loved how beautifully the earrings were packed and delivered to me. I believe, more than a product, it’s the story behind it that matters. Papermelon understands the concept well and presents it just the right way.
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.
Beautiful! Got so many compliments on my earrings – shopping now for my next purchase! =)
Great, hard to believe it’s made of paper! It looks like wood. So cool!
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 to say this is my favorite shop. When I received it and opened it was like I have gotten a gift from a friend, on a gift box with a nice ribbon and a card with my name. It felt so nice to know that someone takes their time to actually put in so much love and thoughts in just the little things. The necklace itself looks as beautiful as in the picture. I also purchased the matching ring and earrings.
