These earrings are composed of hand painted and hand rolled paper beads.
The paper is upcycled and then 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.
Inspired by the southwest, these earrings are painted in shades of golden yellow, burnt orange, rusty red, teal and are accented by subtle hints of gold. They dangle approximately 1.5 inches from the bottom of the stainless steel earwires.
