FAQ

​What are the earrings treated with?
 
All earrings are treated with a decoupage solution that adds a protective coating making them durable and water resistant. Water resistant doesn't mean water proof. If it rains, I'd recommend taking them off; water droplets will bead up over the paper and you can dry them a cloth. Don't wear these in the shower or for any scuba diving expeditions. ;)  
 

What type of Paper is used?
 
My earrings are folded from a fine quality Japanese paper called "Chiyogami" ; it has brilliant and intense color patterns with gold metallic overlays. Inspired by Kimono fabric, each design is painstakingly crafted by artists across Japan with pigment-based inks, providing a high quality decorative paper with intense fade-resistant colors.


How do you make Silver Origami?

In order to make Silver origami, I use a  PMC (Precious Metal Clay) sheet of silver. The sheet is a mixture of silver dust and clay with a leather like texture. I fold the sheet into a design using tweezers and then fire it in a Kiln at 1650 degrees for 30 minutes; the kiln burns off the clay and what is left is 99% pure silver. Once cooled to room temp, I polish the silver origami with a brass brush to bring out their shine and pair them with sterling silver attachments. 

How do I take care of my earrings? ​
 
It's best to store your earrings in a cool dry place. Avoid sleeping in them as well as spraying perfume while on. I'd also recommend always wearing your earrings with the rubber ear-nuts they came with so they don't fall off your ear. With reasonable care, they'll last indefinitely. ​
