Timeless Kerala Earrings
This elegant piece of jewelry is inspired by the tradition of Kerala – the beautiful southern most state of India. Gold and off white combination holds special significance in the culture of Kerala and is considered to be the most auspicious.
The charming dangles are made from paper beads with a rustic gold and off-white checks design.
Paper is meticulously rolled into perfect tube shaped beads and assembled into dangles. The dangles are given a coat of sealant to make them water resistant. The dangles hang from sterling silver ear wires.
My jewelry making process is incredibly time consuming and tedious, however, the final result always makes me smile. I hope it brings you the same joy 🙂
Dangle length – 0.75 inches (2 cm)
Dangle width – 0.75 inches (2 cm)
Earring length (including ear wires) – 3.3 inches (5 cm)

It 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.
I asked Devi to create a longer custom pair of these news capsule earrings, and Devi was very helpful and communicative. She messaged me about my preferences, and quickly sent the earrings out. Thanks for the earrings, Devi!
