I make origami butterflies for some of my mobiles and when I came across some beautiful small sized origami paper I thought they would make lovely butterflies. They came out so well that I decided they needed to be jewelry! These green and light yellow butterfly earrings are first folded then a lacquer is applied to the front and back to add strength and a shiny protective finish. Each butterfly measures approx. 1.5 inches across and 1 inch long. The total length of earrings with hooks and jump rings is 1.5 inches. These colorful, lightweight origami butterfly earrings would be perfect for birthday presents, Mother's Day presents, butterfly lovers, origami lovers, stocking stuffers or just an easy to wear, lightweight, fun earring. These earrings are lacquered for strength and durability but they are not to be used when swimming or anywhere they could get wet. These earrings and all Katiemade Origami products come from a smoke free and pet free home and studio.
