I had originally made an origami leaf tree necklace way, way back when I started making origami jewellery and had just moved on from folding more than cranes. Since then my skills and knowledge have increased (read: I’m better at making leaves more precisely and better glued); so I decided I wanted to upgrade the leaves on the necklace so it will be worn more and not waste the reusable elements.
This project is a great way to use small scraps of fabric – particularly the scraps that are too small or skinny for fabric button earrings!
Using fabric ink and fabric glue makes the ink and gluing permanent and washable. I.e. You can wear them and not worry about the weather! Let it rain fabric earrings!
Summer fun! Make seashell jewellery without making holes in the shells! No drill needed. Less chance for breakages. This method is great if the shells are old and dry = more brittle. It’s also pretty quick and easy (particularly if the shells are clean and ready to be hot glue gun filled!)
