Hi everyone! I love origami so I made a bunch of origami earrings for fun. They're simply made from origami paper (usually I buy the smallest size and then cut into 4 pieces) and wire. They are quite simple to make, and I'm still experimenting with more creative variations.

Stars -

Hearts -

Cranes -

Let me know what you guys think =)

Everything goes better with beads.

Lovely! did you seal them with anything? I'd hate to see them accidentally squished!

Thanks! The paper itself is coated with a plastic sheet so that helps a bit. Are there specific supplies for sealing?

these are so cute! I remember being addicted to origami for a while ^^ these earrings are really nice and I love how you used shiny paper and not regular old paper lol

OMG how were you able to fold these so well because they are so tiny!  Very cute.  The paper you chose gives them extra lalala factor.

Thanks for the lovely comments! Stars are actually easier to fold with smaller strips of paper in my opinion haha.. but paper cranes are trickier.
