Lovely & lightweight, these paper pebble stud earrings make a real statement – and not just an environmental one! You’ll think the earrings have been made from stone or ceramic from a distance…. and no one ever guesses that they have actually be hand carved from recycled newspaper. These are unique, handmade earrings – every single one I make is different! Both of these share various shades of greys with a just hint of blue and red.
I start by glueing sheets of a few sheets of newspaper together, continuing until I have a hard block of paper at the thickness I need. Once the block is bone dry, I work into it with my crafting knives and sanders. This shapes the piece and also reveals the individual colourful inks printed on the paper, which further make each piece of jewellery unique. Next I varnish each piece to both strengthen the paper and highlight the colours.
As with all my paper jewellery, they are pretty sturdy buy please do NOT wear them in the shower!
