A favourite of Lumago Ambassador Angelo Villanueva, our Cleopatra necklace was designed by our artisan Mely. It can be worn as a collar with barrel shaped hand rolled recycled paper beads and braided re-purposed clothes with a metal clasp at the back of the neck.
All our beads are dipped in a resin and dried 3 times. Although this makes the beads durable and water resistant, they are not waterproof. We do not recommend that they are worn in the shower or while swimming.
As our jewelry is handmade, no two pieces are ever alike making them completely one of a kind.
All of our jewelry is upcycled, designed & handmade in the Philippines following fair trade principles.
