These earrings are composed of hand painted and hand rolled paper beads.
Upcycled paper is hand painted. Once the paint has cured, the paper is cut into long triangular strips and then rolled into these gorgeous beads. Later, they are glazed with many coats of a water-based, non-toxic clear acrylic.
These beads are painted in jewel toned shades of golden yellow, orange, garnet red, eggplant, emerald green, and royal blue and are accented by subtle hints of metallic gold. The earrings dangle approximately 1.5 inches from the bottom of the stainless steel earwire.
