A co-worker has been teaching me the art of origami.  Wanting to see how far this art form could go, I found two designers from Paris who are creating origami jewelry creations.

The designers, Clair and Arnaud were initially introduced to the Japanese art form from their friend Masayuki Muraki.  Eventually they developed a collection of earrings using thread and paper.  Silver and gold were not far behind, and they soon began producing the collections in Japan.  Read more about Clair and Arnaud’s story here.

Both whimsical and delicate, you will find some of my favorites from their collections below.

Enjoy!
