Shamrock Stud Earrings Handmade Patricks Day Jewelry

$16.00

It is traditional in Ireland to wear shamrocks on St Patrick's Day.  Give yourself a little extra luck by wearing these cuties every day!  Modeled after the iconic symbols of Ireland, these shamrock stud earrings have been lovingly handcrafted entirely from strips of paper using quilling techniques.  They are attached to silver plated posts and come with plastic safety backs for comfort.  They have been hand painted in a sealant which makes them slightly shiny, water resistant and UV resistant. They are super lightweight.  Titanium posts are also available for those with sensitive ears.

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

Dimensions:

Approx. 1/3in x 1/3in

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.
