Soaring gold prices, coupled with a craze for being trendy has prompted young women to go in for environment-friendly, cheap paper jewellery.
And the advantages are many. For one, paper jewellery, made from recycled paper with water, is bio-degradable and non-allergic. It is light, durable, sweat resistant and can withstand normal pressure. Also, normal water contact does not damage it, says an entrepreneur.
To make it involves a labour-intensive process, wherein each bead is hand rolled, glued and triple-varnished. Women from disadvantaged backgrounds are usually hired to help with production.
"We use mill made recycled paper, which helps reduce our carbon footprint and helps the environment," Usha Natrajan, managing parter of city-based Mahalakshmi Creations, which is incorporated with 80 entrepreneurs on paper jewellery, told PTI here.
Saying that paper jewellery could be customised in any colour and pattern, which is more economically viable than gold jewellery, she said most of her customers were in the 20-35 age group. "Mostly young girls evince interest in buying the jewellery," she added.
Explaining the method involved in making paper jewellery, Usha said that paper is first manually moulded into beads of different shapes and sizes. Utmost care is taken in bonding, strengthening, hardening, colouring and waterproofing. The paper beads are then adorned with crystals, stones, chatons, kundan, glass beads, polki, semi-precious stones, acrylic beads, and horn beads, she added. She said her company has produced more than 2,000 designs in 40 colours so far .
"Special designs are being developed for changing seasons and moods. The range varies from elaborate and detailed designs to basics," she said. She said that prices for a pair of earrings start at Rs 45.
Usha explained that acceptance of paper jewellery is catching on. "We give options to customers, right from choosing the main design base to the beads. We then fix original Swarovski glass beads, cultured beads and pearls.We do not use chemicals in any process while making the jewellery," she said.
Started in a small way in 2006, Usha's company sold paper jewellery worth Rs 3 lakh in its first year. "After that, there has been a steady growth in sales of 40 percent every year," she added.
Sivaranjani, a college student, said she preferred to wear paper jewellery since there are many designs and it is eco-friendly. "It is cheap," she said.
Dermatologists say no research has yet been conducted on the possible effects of wearing paper jewellery, as it is a new entrant into the market.

Interesting to note that this virus was originally referred to as swine flu because laboratory testing showed that many of the genes in this new virus were very similar to influenza viruses that normally occur in pigs in North America. But further study has shown that this new virus is very different from what normally circulates in North American pigs. It has two genes from flu viruses that normally circulate in pigs in Europe and Asia and avian genes and human genes. Scientists call this a “quadruple reassortant” virus.
What is drawing more eyeballs than the cheerleaders at the season-2 of IPL? Surprise surprise – It’s a BLOG? And that too a mole’s blog.
The “Fake IPL Player”, as he calls himself, claims to be a part of Shahrukh Khan’s team ‘The Kolkata Knight Riders’, and is writing away to glory at the expense of the ‘who’s who’ at IPL. Just a few days old, the blog, http://fakeiplplayer.blogspot.com/, has already managed to hit headlines on all major newspapers and has a fan following that runs in thousands. What's more, the blog has created quite a stir at the Indian Premier League. Reason being, the stories posted are more about dressing room politics, jazzy team owners, who’s dating whom and the players’ off field exploits, than about IPL. Of course with malice towards one and all…all but “Sourav Ganguly, The Lordie”.
The fake names used by the blogger to refer to the ‘who’s who’ are pretty creative, yet identifiable. Sample this:
Lord Almighty - Sourav Ganguly
Big Sister - Shilpa Shetty
Babli - Preity Zinta
Prince Charles of Patiala - Yuvraj Singh
Havaii Chappal - Greg Chapel
Sandy Baddy babe - Mandira Bedi
Bevdaa Team - Bangalore Royal Challengers
The interest generated by this blog, forced the KKR CEO Joy Bhattacharya to come out with a response:
"Poison pen writing of the dirtiest variety, but far too many factual errors. Whoever it is out there is obviously very sick, perverted and has far too little information or insight to successfully pretend to be a part of us," he said.
However, the blogger claims that there are frenetic attempts to smoke him out. He goes on to say that, “Laptops hv bn banned. I'net removed fm rooms. But posts wl continue thru SMS, relayed by my bro in India."

With more and more milk products from China and Taiwan having problem. We really got to check where the things are produced. Here is a way to differentiate Taiwan made products and China made products : by looking at first three digits of its Bar Code.
If the 1st 3 digits are 690, 691 or 692 - China made
If the 1st 3 digits are 471 - Taiwan made
So please spread the words to everyone......
Nowadays, China businessmen know the consumers do not prefer products "made in china", so they won't show made from which country.
However, you may now refer to the barcodes, if the first 3 digits is 690-692 then it is made in China .
