This piece of paper origami jewellery has been made using paper taken from a vintage copy of Culpeper's Complete Herbal. I love taking the paper from books that might otherwise be thrown away and giving it new life by turning it into beautiful and original pieces of recycled paper jewellery such as these tiny rose drop earrings.
These earrings would make the perfect gift for so many people, not just those who believe in recycling but also for any book lovers.
Creating my origami jewellery is a time intensive procedure, typically spread out over four days. Not only do I carefully fold all the origami elements myself, but I also ensure that every origami element is well sealed with varnish. The care that I take when making each piece means that when you buy a piece of my jewellery you are buying something special and unique.
- The paper used in the earrings has been given several coats of good-quality waterproof varnish to add shine, strength, durability and water resistance.
- The earrings come on sterling (925) silver hooks.
- Buying these as a gift? I am happy to gift wrap them for you and add a handwritten tag with your message for no additional charge.
