Recycled Paper "Love" Pendant
Our Recycled Paper Pendants are a beautiful and unique way to show your support for Mother Earth and one another! Each one is imprinted with the word LOVE. Each piece is strung on a recycled cotton cord (approximately 26 inches) and adorned with a matching paper bead. There are two available: Green "Love"- approximately 2 3/4 long by 1/2 inch wide at the top and flaring out to 3/4 inch wide at the bottom. Blue "Love"- approximately 3 inches long by 3/4 inch wide at the top and flaring out to 1 inch wide at the bottom. 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 "Love" Pendants 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, form and stamp each piece. After drying, the pieces are sanded, wiped down, then painted. The excess paint is removed with a damp cloth, showing the "Love"! Each one is finished with a uv resistant gloss varnish. *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.
