$28.00

Show mother nature you love her style by flaunting these upcycled paper hoop earrings.  Handcrafted from recycled magazines, these hoops dangle delicately from gorgeous sterling silver artisan earwires.  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 hoop 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 turquoise with pink highlights but the possibilities are endless!  You can also choose from solid colors such as the pink hoops 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 hoop is approximately 1.25 inches in diameter

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.
