Turquoise paper bead earrings, copper coil design

The handmade turquoise paper beads used for these earrings were rolled from paper which I hand decorated with various inks including black, and a range of metallics. These hematite beads add a nice touch to dress up the earrings and compliment the paper beads.

The earrings are approximately 2 1/8 inches long which includes the earwires, and are 3/8 inches wide.

The earwires are silver plated wire and come with ear nuts in case you like to use them.

An acrylic coating was painted on the beads for protection, making them water resistant.
