This set is a special order for PT and not for sale to other customers at this time. Thank you.
This necklace is made from bicone shaped paper beads that I purchased when I traveled to Sri Lanka some years ago. The paper beads are made from colorful recycled magazines, a wonderful way to reduce litter in developing countries and provide a livelihood to rural women. Used magazines are cut into thin strips rolled into a bead and carefully sealed with a clear resin to make them durable and wearable. In addition to the earthy colored paper beads, I have added a mix of square Tiger Eye beads, and bright Fuchsia colored cultured rice-shaped freshwater Pearls. Shiny faceted Czech glass beads add a touch of sparkle to the necklace. A pair of matching earrings completes the set.
Length: 42.5 inches.
Beading Wire: 0.15"/49 strand clear-coated stainless steel professional quality beading wire with 14K gold-filled crimps and crimp covers.

Earrings: 1 and 7/8th inches from your piercing. The French ear hooks are of hypoallergenic Niobium ear wires. All ear wires from Sundancegems come with a clear medical grade PVC ear clutch or stopper. These fit snug on the ear wire, and prevent you from loosing your earrings.
