Description: A truly unique necklace featuring individually hand rolled paper beads made out of glossy junk mail. This colourful paper has given the beads an interesting and beautiful pattern. The combination of the colourful beads and yellow opaque pearls on the silver chain is gorgeous making this the perfect accessory to make that outfit spring to life.

Approximate Dimensions:
This necklace measures 40cm - 47cm (16" - 18 ½") with an adjustable clasp to adjust it to the length you like.

Materials: This piece of jewellery is created by me, Mikaela Beth, using my own hand crafted beads. The beads begin as a sheet of paper - maybe an old book, brochure, map, wrapping or scrapbooking paper. Each bead is cut, rolled and given a protective, water-resistant coating before being used to create this beautiful piece. Although the primary material is paper, it has been treated in such a way that it is now very hard-wearing and practical to be worn as jewellery.

What happens if it rains? All Mikaela Beth jewellery is protected using a moisture resistant sealant. It will withstand being worn through a light shower of rain but I suggest you remove it before taking a shower (although one piece has been tested in this way several times, unintentionally, and is no worse for wear).

Why Paper? I enjoy the tactile feel and beauty of paper and always have. The process of creating a beautiful piece of wearable art from what is often a discarded item is 'upcycling' in a way I enjoy and find fulfilling. The initial material may look unappealing to many but I see the potential in something like a well loved and thumbed book. Potential to give it something which was once a favourite read a new life as a beautiful wearable piece of art.

Need a Gift? This would make any birthday lady or girl delighted. We all know how much us females love a 'just cause' present (even if it's bought by ourselves). It also makes a perfect gift for any special anniversary. Paper is traditionally the gift given for a first wedding anniversary, so why not make it paper with a 'twist' and in a form your lady will love to wear time and time again. Whatever the occasion it's guaranteed to be a winner.
