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 shades of a stormy sea accented by subtle hints of metallic gold and black and white stripes.
The earrings dangle a little over 1.75" inches from the bottom of the stainless steel earwires.
