Recycled Paper Dolphin Pendant
Our Recycled Paper Dolphin Pendants are a beautiful and unique way to show your support for Mother Earth! Each one is individually painted with a balanced color combination that looks great dressed up or down. Each piece is strung on a durable black hemp cord. The Dolphins are available in two color schemes: White with palm green and calypso blue specks and Key West Teal with White and Tuscan Teal specks. Keeping with the spirit of Recycling, we also used these on wine bottles and as adornments on gifts. I am sure there are many uses for these Pendants and would love to hear your ideas! The Dolphin Pendants and button catches are crafted from recycled paper clay I make using high quality and durable ingredients. I start with recycled paper (office paper, junk mail), shred it then pour boiling water over it. After two days, the recycled paper (now pulp) is poured into a muslin cloth and allowed to drain. I mix the pulp with PVA glue, joint compound, boiled linseed oil and a bit of flour.  The clay is rolled flat and I hand cut and form each piece. After drying, the Dolphins and button catches are sanded, painted a primary color, then speckled with two rounds of colorful acrylic paint. They are finished with a uv resistant gloss varnish. The Pendants are strung onto black hemp and finished with the button catch and a loop. The catch and loop are easy to use and quite reliable. The Dolphins measure approximately 1 ¾ inch X 1 inch. Each necklace measures approximately 19 inches. *While each one is crafted with genuine care and love, small imperfections can occur, but it adds to the unique charm of each piece. *Because of differences in monitors, actual colors can vary from what is seen online. *These are water resistant, but NOT waterproof. If it does become soft after saturation, allow to air dry.
