Blue paper bead earrings, wire wrapped

I made these beads from paper that is a mix of deep blue with a touch of purple. It’s a unique color that looks awesome with the copper which is coiled under the beads. Black seeds are imbedded in each copper roll.

I’ve oxidized, polished and waxed the copper to give it a warm, rich color.

The earrings are lightweight and very comfortable to wear.  They are approximately 2 inches long, including the ear wire, and 3/8 inch wide.

An acrylic coating was painted on the beads to protect it from normal wear and tear, making them water resistant.

The ear wires are made from silver plated wire and are an original design to compliment the beads. And they come with ear nuts in case you like to use them.
