Orchid Ombre Hand-Painted Paper Bead Earrings

Inspired by an orchid in ombre shades of purple and accented by subtle hints of gold, these earrings are composed of hand-painted and hand-rolled paper beads. Upcycled wallpaper samples are painted by hand, cut into long triangular strips, and then rolled into these lovely beads. Then, they are glazed with many coats of a clear acrylic. The earrings dangle approximately 1.25 inches from the bottom of the stainless steel earwires.
