    These are a couple of paper candy or gum wrapper necklaces I came across One a couple weeks ago and the other like a few days ago. The longer one with the various round and elongated beads I'm not for sure what kinds of wrappers they are but the other flat shaped one looks like candy or gum wrappers. It also looks Asian by some of the writing on the wrappers. They are flapper style, The flat one is about 44" with the round one about 60". neither one has a clasp. I have never before seen this kind of jewelry. anybody else ever see anything like these? I was not sure of the category so just put them in folk art because they looked handmade to me.

      I used to make them with my students out of magazine pages. They loved it! And it kept them busy for a long time:)

      My brother told me they were popular a few years back. I just thought they were colorful and different.

      Your examples are really great! I love the variegated example. I also have one from contact paper attached to paper clips. I assumed mine was 1970's - but it must be newer now that I read these posts. Anyway I love it.
