Eco Friendly Upcycled Red Paper Necklace

$37.00

Feel good about your decision to support handmade, ethical eco-fashion and look uh-mazing at the same time. This stunning chunky red necklace has been carefully hand crafted from recycled magazine paper, precisely sorted to display seductive shades of red in each component.  As it is one of a kind, no two pieces are exactly the same but the overall aesthetic will closely resemble what you see in the photo.  The pendant has been hand painted in a sealant which makes it water resistant and UV resistant. It is super lightweight yet durable and suitable for every day wear. It hangs from a stunning antique copper abstract flower chain.

All jewelry items will arrive in beautifully packaged boxes wrapped with a ribbon and optional gift tag, ready for giving. 

Dimensions:

Pendant approx. 1.25in x 3in

Approx. 21 inches total length (18 inches of chain)

This is a one of a kind piece which can never be perfectly duplicated.  However, if you would like a piece in this aesthetic, please message me. I will be delighted to make you a custom piece!  The final photo is an example of a custom request in red and orange, with a shiny gloss.

What is quilling?

Quilling is also known as paper filigree. It is an ancient art form that involves curling, rolling, looping, scrolling and coiling thin strips of paper into various shapes for decorative and artistic purposes.

All of my quilled paper jewelry is what I like to call "rain or shine", as I carefully hand-paint each piece with a sealant that makes it water resistant and UV resistant. This sealant also provides a sturdiness to the paper which makes it just as robust as "regular" jewelry. I do not recommend swimming in or sitting on your quilled paper jewelry :) but it is suitable for everyday wear. As with all precious jewelry, careful storage of your paper jewelry is also advised.
