Turtle Earrings Eco Friendly Paper Quilling

$32.00

These little turtles aren't of the teenage mutant kind, but they sure are about the cutest kind! Made using paper quilling techniques, these little guys are eco-friendly and entirely made from paper. They would make a great gift for any animal lover or nature enthusiast. The quilled turtles are various shades of green and their shells shine like the real thing. They are coated in a sealant which makes it water resistant and UV resistant. They are super lightweight. Plastic safety backs are included. Can be converted to clip-on earrings for un-pierced ears or to ultra hypoallergenic niobium hooks for sensitive ears.  Sterling silver hooks also available.

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

Dimensions:

Approx. 1in x 1in (1.75in including snap hooks)

If you like this and prefer a different size or color combination please message me. I will be delighted to make you a custom piece!

 

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.
