These origami leaf earrings are folded from pages from a vintage 1965 copy of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, paired with antiqued brass filigree beads and hang from antiqued brass fish hook style earwires.

To make these folded paper leaf earrings, I cut 10 cm squares from a vintage copy of Pride and Prejudice, and use origami folding techniques to create a leaf shape. I glue along the seams for added strength before coating each leaf in a triple coat of waterproof acrylic varnish for water-resistance and durability. The completed leaves are strong, durable and water-resistant, despite their origins as 45 year old book pages.

My Pride and Prejudice leaf earrings are my best-selling jewelry item at craft shows! They are perfect for literary buffs, Jane Austen fans, and vintage lovers alike. They make fantastic romantic gifts or stocking stuffers. They're even environmentally friendly, as they're upcycled from vintage book pages.

All of my jewelry is made with lead-free and nickel-free findings. Other earwire styles are also available - please contact me if you would prefer sterling silver (for sensitive ears - $5 additional charge applies). You may also select screw-on style earwires for unpierced ears (no additional charge) from the variations menu.

These earrings have a matching pendant, shown in the last image. The earrings and pendant can be purchased together as a special bundle - save $5 by buying them together:
