Gray and yellow is a very striking and trendy color combination, and I made this unique necklace in these colors using paper beads which I upcycled from ephemera! The paper beads hang on an antiqued bronze toned chain, and below each paper bead a smooth golden agate nugget stone dangles. The irregular shape of each stone adds character to this necklace. Small black glass beads accent the paper beads which are are striped with gray, yellow, black and hints of orange for a very contemporary look.

Ephemera is paper that is intended to be only temporarily important then discarded--examples are brochures, newspaper, pamphlets, etc. The ephemera I used to make this necklace was magazine pages. Not only does this give the necklace character, but is also eco friendly. This necklace will certainly be a statement piece- and a conversation piece as well!

The necklace:
- is approximately 18 (45.7 cm) inches long
- closes with a lobster clasp.

These paper beads are covered in a glossy coat, giving them a sheen as well as a protective layer. However, since they are made of paper, I would not recommend getting them excessively wet, such as in the pool or shower.

All of my jewelry creations come in handmade origami boxes, as pictured in the fifth photo here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/41018703/amber-dreams-upcycled-ephemera-paper
