Hand crafted paper jewellery

Yes, these are made of papers. And each one is unique as the making of the pieces involves 10 fingers. Fully handcrafted, trendy, eco-friendly and light weight jewellery.
There are gorgeous roses, colourful danglers, traditional yet modern jhumkas to go with your modern and ethnic outfits.

In June last my friend Deepa mailed me a link to Flickr with loads of paper jewellery made by her. She moved on from there to have a shelf for her jewellery in a few places including DakshinaChitra. Then came her blog updating what's she bringing out periodically.

She is not yet another 'craft aunty' or 'jewellery maami'. She calls her brand '10 fingers!'. She does her business online. The packing and despatching the hand crafted jewellery is thoroughly professional.

Now if you want to see a few samples of her work, below are a couple of them.

For orders and more details, go to her blog -

I have seen lot of paper key chains, and I guess this follows the same pattern.

Had heard from someone that there was some guy in pondicherry who had started this workshop after tsunami, but could not get more details though.
