Cactus stud earrings with Japanese leafy Washi paper

Description

These cute cactus earrings have been carefully decorated with Japanese Washi or Chyogami paper in shades of green and metallic gold leaf pattern. Japanese Chyogami paper is hand block printed layer by layer, each colour added one at a time, with the final colour usually gold or silver metallic detailing of the pattern.

I have used decopage techniques to adhere the paper to the wooden cactus in a pot shape, finally adding a layer of clear embossing powder for a glossy effect! The back of the cactus shape has been painted with artists quality green metallic acrylic paint.

The cactus is approximately 4cm long by 1cm wide, and I've used surgical steel silver plated ear posts with rubber ear nuts (if you prefer surgical steel scroll backs, please let me know in the notes section).

They come to you in a recycled kraft card jewellery box.

Inspiration

I just love this paper from Japan! It is still made in the traditional way of block printing - even the fibre they use is different to western paper!
