Tulip Inspired Paper Bead Earrings

These earrings are created from hand-painted and hand-rolled paper beads painted in a shades of dark red, red, orange, yellow, and lime green and accented by subtle hints of metallic gold. 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 a little over 1.25 inches from the bottom of the stainless steel earwires.
