Earrings – Kerosene Grass Paper
These earrings were made by hand in Central Australia using products made and collected on the million acre cattle station we call home. The paper used to make this piece of jewellery is hand made from the native Central Australian Grass in the Old Abattoir.
These earrings each have 2 Kerosene Grass Paper beads. The variations in the colour of the beads come from the colour of the handmade paper. Each time we make paper from a grass type it comes out a different colour and texture depending on where the plant is in it’s lifecycle. We were very lucky to have an amazing amount of rainfall last year which meant green grass, therefore green paper, which makes green paper beads! These earrings are very special. It may be years before we have green paper beads again, and we are down the the last few!
We hope you enjoy your wonderful piece of jewellery, knowing it is a handmade and one-off piece.
