SnS Loves ~ LeeMo Origami Diamond Earrings

Hi lovelies!  As you may know, I have such a penchant for unique, statement jewelry.  So it comes as no surprise that when Leela reached out to me to check out her handmade origami earrings, I fell head over heels in love with them!  I'm sure you will too... {Click to keep reading}

Presentation is everything, no?  The earrings came beautifully packaged; her attention to detail is incredible.  

Leela has been an avid paper-folder for over 20 years but decided to turn her hobby into her business recently.  She remembers being inspired by her grandmother's jewelry collection but those earrings were HEAVY!  So the idea of paper earrings was born!  (Seriously, these earrings are so light you'll forget you're wearing them!)

The earrings are coated with a paper sealant to protect and add longevity, but showering or swimming in them certainly isn't advised ;-)

I found the craftsmanship to be absolutely amazing, and am in such awe that she is able to create something so tiny yet so precise and perfect.  I encourage you to check out her website www.leelamorimoto.com, which includes the link to her etsy shop where you can check out more of her incredible designs!

Plus, check back tomorrow to see how I wore these beautiful earrings!
