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 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.
Beautiful, exquisite pieces .. attention to detail and would highly recommend .. many thanks .. A++++++++++
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 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.
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!
Great, hard to believe it’s made of paper! It looks like wood. So cool!
