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)

Fabulous customer service and a great set of earrings! Would happily buy from again!
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 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 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!
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!
This necklace is wonderful,I love the colors and shape.and it arrived fast, nicely packaged.Thank you, Annelies.
