Simple and stylish paper bead earrings earrings that are super lightweight and comfortable to wear.
Perfect for everyday wear or to add a little pop of colour to a special outfit.
These earrings feature beads made from handmade elephant dung paper! This beautiful paper is handmade in Sri Lanka from 80% elephant dung and 20% recycled office waste paper. Proceeds from the sale of the paper help to fund an elephant sanctuary and various conservation and education programs in Sri Lanka. So not will you look great wearing these earrings, but you can feel great about purchasing them too!
The paper beads are hand-rolled by me and have been sealed for water-resistance. So they'll survive if you get caught in a rain shower or accidentally drop them in the sink. However, they are not entirely waterproof and will deteriorate if you wear them swimming or in the shower for any length of time.
The hooks and other pieces used to make these earrings are all Sterling Silver.
Overall drop length approximately 3cm (1 1/4")
Bead size approximatley 1cm (3/8")
These earrings are made to order. Each pair will be unique as no two handmade paper beads are exactly the same. The beads on your earrings may have a slightly different shape to the ones pictured here, but any difference will be small and the overall design, colour and quality will be the same.
Please note that because these earrings are made from elephant dung paper, they cannot be shipped to New Zealand due to quarantine regulations in that country.
