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)

More beautiful and delicate than I could have imagined. Thanks for the prompt shipping.
Received my earrings today – they are perfect! The packaging was also very nice – i don’t even need to wrap them. Thanks so 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.
Beautiful and excellent craftsmanship! My wife loves her new gift. Thank you so much PaperMelon!!!!
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.
