Manjadikuru are the magical seeds from India, known as Circassian seeds. Ever since I was a kid, I have been an obsessive collector of these beautiful bright red seeds, showering down from hundreds of dried pods of the manjadi tree, which is the “good luck tree” of India. They are soooo beautiful, that I couldn’t resist using them in my jewelry creations 🙂
These rustic pair of earrings have a base that is hand sculpted from recycled cardboard and painted black. At the focus is the Circassian seed. The dangles hand from naturally oxidized sterling silver ear wires.
Dangle diameter – 0.7 inch (1.7 cm)
Earring length including the ear wires – 1.3 inches (3.3 cm).

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! 🙂
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!
This is a really neat pendant. Got it as a birthday gift for my niece. I think she’ll love it. Very well made and sent in a cute gift box. Packaged well and arrived in perfect condition. It only took 15 days to get from India to the east coast of the US. I don’t think that is bad at all. It is also nice that this is an adjustable necklace. Very unique!!
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.
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.
Stunning necklace. Beautifully crafted. Delicate-looking.
