I used a rich purple paper for making the beads in these earrings and stamped them with a variety of inks, including black and metallic ink. They are suspended from a texturized copper ring.
When I put the earrings together, I used silver wire, adding black seed beads as I strung the paper beads from the copper ring.
An acrylic coating was painted on the beads to protect them from normal wear and tear, making them water resistant.
The ear wire was custom designed to compliment the earring design and made from sterling silver. And they come with ear nuts in case you like to use them.
These earrings are lightweight and very comfortable to wear.
The earrings, including ear wire, are approximately 1 5/8 inches long and 5/8 inch wide.
