Origami Goldfish Earrings by squeejie Origami Goldfish Earrings by squeejie
This is my present to :iconterriergal: for her birthday/ Christmas :D

Goldfish pattern is by Kunihiko Kasahara, found in her book, Creative Origami.

Earrings made with washi paper, coated heavily with varnish to make them waterproof and durable, and attached to sterling silver earring hooks :XD:

Hope you like them Rach!

dude, those are awesome.
What did you varnish them with?

Thanks! And thanks for the faves.
I varnished them with a normal paint-on, clear varnish that you can get at any craft store. I'm sure a spray-on sealant would work just as well, too.

They are gorgeous. The folding must have been tedious!

thanks! The folding wasn't bad at all, actually. The pattern is relatively simple- it was making them so small that was a little hard, lol :D

YAAAAAY! My sexy goldfish earrings. :heart: I am so wearing them to church today so when people see them and go, "WHOA! Where did you get those?!" I can say, "They are a Kelsey original, one of a kind. HAH." :XD:
