Tutorial - How to Make Spiral Origami Earrings

By on Thursday, November 04, 2010 1 Comments

Like origami jewelry?  But oh so tired of the crane?  Well, I stumbled upon this neat origami spiral earrings tutorial by Laura on Cut Out and Keep. Laura only covers the earring construction in this how-to which will be easy for most if not all of you.

To make the spiral, you will need her spiral tutorial also from the same site. She illustrates it very well and uses larger pieces of paper. The different colored papers also added to the attractiveness of this folding technique.

The real challenge for the earrings is to fold really, really small! You'll also need to seal them with varnish or something like that to protect them.


If you prefer, watch the video showing how to make this spiral originally designed by Tomoko Fuse, the Japanese origami writer and artist.

You're AWESOME! Thanks for the comment and feedback. You do make a difference on my blog!

  1. That requires so much more dexterity than I have. I can't even fold a t-shirt properly! Stitching, yes. Melting, yes. Even piping icing for cakes. Just don't ask me to fold anything :)
