These earrings are tiny pieces of origami! They are folded into the shape of a star thus – origami star earrings. They are made from a very sturdy and water resistant paper. The origami star earrings come in a ton of different colors but all of them are dangly earrings that hang from french hooks. They are so lightweight and easy to wear. They move easily in the wind and are the type of materials that won’t pinch or get stuck in your hair.
They hang down just about 1 1/2 inches below your ear and are about 1/4 inch thick. They paper is folded in lots of different directions making this a 3 dimensional origami star! The paper is a wax coated style and has just a touch of a gloss to the color and the coating is what keeps them water resistant.
The french hooks are base metal so please be careful if you have metal or nickel allergies. These earrings are handmade by origami artist Josh Davis also know as Origamisms from Austin TX. Josh also makes some Pop Shop’s large origami sculptural installations that you can see at the festival.
