Timeless Kerala Necklace
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 pendant is 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 a pendant. The pendant is given a coat of sealant to make it water resistant. The square pendant is strung through off-white waxed cotton cord. The necklace length can be adjusted with the little wooden bead.
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 🙂
Pendant – 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) long and 1.5 inches (3.8 cm) wide
Necklace length – 30 inches (76 cm)

I am in love with this bracelet. I love the colors used in the paper, truly unique. Fast shipment, thank you! 🙂
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.
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.
I wanted to buy something “different” for a gift to my wife for our 1st wedding anniversary and this certainly did the trick – everything from the handwritten addressed packaging to the hand-made unique necklace – I would certainly recommend this shop.
Received my earrings today – they are perfect! The packaging was also very nice – i don’t even need to wrap them. Thanks so much!
The earrings are my love!They are so cosy and warm – match any outfit!
