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)

Thanks for the earrings and solid packaging! They are very cute and colorful!
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 LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this necklace! It’s so unique, looks great, it’s light-weight and comfortable! Thank you so much!
Beautiful, I ordered several pair for gifts. It takes a little longer because they are beautifully hand crafted to perfection. The artist treats each order with a personal touch. I highly recommend. Her earrings look like metal but are made of metallic paper and are lightweight and comfortable, five star for sure.
Great, hard to believe it’s made of paper! It looks like wood. So cool!
Beautiful earrings! Arrived in a lovely package and will be a wonderful gift for my mother.
