ABOUT C&B PAPER EARRINGS:

• Extremely Feather-light weight

 • Made with a combination of colored/patterned and textured cardstock and sometimes other elements or charms.

• Put through a fusion process and sealed for water resistance and durability.

* Just like leather or other earrings, please take care and do not swim or bathe with your paper earrings for optimal keep. You can however lightly clean them with a soft cloth or slightly damp cloth to remove makeup or dry if you get stuck in the rain!

MEET THE MAKER

" Hello! My name is Amy, and I am so happy to share with you a little background about me, my family, and my business.

I came up with the name Caribou & Birch with my husband Scott's help while sitting in our Midwest home under the Covid19 Pandemic.

Growing up I always loved textures and my favorite medium was painting. I loved the feel of different paints and papers from acrylic to watercolor. I found a love for wooden items and woodworking, as my dad was always in the shop making wooden items and my mother painting them.

I fell in love with coming up with new designs at a young age, and would often sneak away to draw little handmade clothing designs and daydream of new fashion pieces.

I started my earring jewelry obsession when I decided to make faux leather earrings. My ears have always been sensitive, and at the time, it was hard to find earrings that were hypoallergenic and nickel-free. I then decided to switch to making wood earrings because of my love for woodworking and finally having a machine that would cut small pieces. One day I was trying to laser a thin piece of wood that was being so difficult to cut and I just I couldn't understand why, because it was "Paper Thin!"

From there I went on a mission to make my own water resistant, more durable and sustainable earrings and...

Caribou & Birch Paper Earrings were born! 

My husband and children are so supportive in my business and I have been so blessed. Both of my sons love helping with our family business and look forward to working by my side more and more as they get older.
