Origami Cranes Part 2 - Earrings

As you can probably tell from the title, there's the answer to yesterday's mystery!

These were made based on a little idea that I had-- just have a little dangle charm with a loop that can easily slide on and off kidney ear wires for super space saving and thriftiness! I have dozens of earrings now, and only needed to obtain one pair of ear wires: the most expensive part of my earrings :)

I tried different techniques to color the paper too, since I didn't want just solid colors. Thin tipped markers and water colors! (Click here to see the origami crane tutorial)

Just poke a hole straight through the crane with a needle, run some wire through, and make little loops on the ends. 

They also have three coats of varnish to waterproof and stabilize the paper.

The loop on the bottom may look a bit odd now, but just wait until the next post to see what they're meant for ;)
