Recycled Paper Marquise Earrings with Designer Ear Wires

$28.00

These recycled paper earrings with fabulous designer ear wires mean you don't have to sacrifice style for sustainability.  Upcycled from 100% magazine paper, the long marquise shapes dangle delicately from handcrafted sterling silver hooks.  The earrings are made to order and are one of a kind.  They are eco-friendly and super lightweight.  They are also durable and sturdy, each paper form having been hand painted in several layers of sealant making them water resistant and UV resistant.  As these hoops are one of a kind, no two pairs are exactly the same but the overall aesthetic will closely resemble what you see in the photo.  The magazine paper used was carefully selected to display dark tones with green highlights but the possibilities are endless!  You can also choose from solid colors such as the lavender earrings in the additional photographs.

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

Dimensions:

Each marquise shape is approximately 2.1 inches long x .4 inches wide

This is a one of a kind pair 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 in the colors of your choice!

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.
