Tami's tutorial on CutOutandKeep uses the head pin with beads on top of and below each crane. If you prefer to see it demonstrated, check out Davi Kallman's origami crane earring video tutorial. She uses elastic to string the cranes.
The tutorial by umeorigami is easy to do. The author points out they make great beads and garlands.
Craftyartworld's tutorial shows you how to make a simple flat origami heart. A small pair will look great as earrings. There is an accompanying video to help illustrate the steps.
loveliest heart earring tutorials. Worth a go!
very pretty water lily origami brooch. It is tougher than it looks! Abigail says washi paper soaks up varnish like a sponge making it durable. Her brooch survived being bashed around in her bag for a few hours!
If you are looking for a book, Ayako Brodek's book Origami Jewelry: More Than 40 Exquisite Designs to Fold and Wear is awesome. The jewelry is beautiful and highly wearable. If you would like to review it for yourself from the comfort of your chair, check out Google Book Search here. You can see several pages from the book. I highly recommend using Google Book Search and libraries to review books before deciding whether to buy or not. Not every book is available for review but it is always worth a quick check.
