Earrings – Kerosene Grass Paper Square Beads
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 a Kerosene Grass Paper bead. 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 life cycle. I then cut the paper and roll it into beads to make a piece of jewellery. This is a new design, using the rolled paper in a different way rather than an ‘ordinary’ bead, showing a larger surface and texture in the handmade paper.
We hope you enjoy your wonderful piece of jewellery, knowing it is a handmade and one-off piece.

Please keep in mind that each bead and piece is individually made and whilst design and colours will be consistent, individual pieces will vary slightly.
