Tropic Newspaper Necklace
This eco friendly necklace is made entirely out of recycled materials – newspaper and cardboard.
The pendant base is hand sculpted from recycled cardboard, and sanded to perfection. Thin strips of glossy newspaper, carefully chosen in natural shades of green, are then neatly stuck to the sturdy base. The pendant is then given a coat of eco friendly sealant to make it sweat and splash proof.
The rectangular pendant is strung through a brown 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 🙂
Due to the nature of materials, the necklace you receive will differ slightly from those shown in the pictures, however the color mix will remain the same.
The pendant measures 2 1/2 inches (6.3 cm) long and 2 inches (5 cm) wide. The necklace is adjustable with a maximum length of 30 inches.
This necklace is part of my ‘Green cycle’ collection, celebrating an eco friendly life.

The pendant is protected using a sealant which allows the jewellery to be sweat and splash proof. However, they should not be immersed in water. Read detailed care instructions here.

Beautiful! Got so many compliments on my earrings – shopping now for my next purchase! =)
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.
Beautiful and excellent craftsmanship! My wife loves her new gift. Thank you so much PaperMelon!!!!
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 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!
So innovative! I like the shape, color combinations, and creativity of using rolled colored paper. Thank you!
