Earrings: folded paper short drop single floret
Beautiful, extremely lightweight, one of a kind handmade paper earrings.
Each earring is created from 10 pieces of paper that are cut, folded, and glued together. The edges are painted gold, and resin is thinly painted on as a final step to keep the paper from fading. Resin also adds gloss and strength to the form so that they will not get damaged from everyday wear.
The paper is maroon with pink and gold dots. Purple beads complete the ends.
The wire has been curved and won't loose it's shape.
They hang 1 inches (2.5 cm) from the bottom of the hook.
The hooks are hypo-allergenic surgical steel. I include rubber stoppers on the back so you can wear them with confidence that you won't loose one.
The florets themselves are approx. 3/4" (1 3/4 cm).
