Size of folds for earrings?

Postby Gerardo » November 11th, 2017, 6:45 am

I was asked to make folds for a pair of earrings. It's my first time. Have any of you made origami earrings? What should the final size of the folds be?

Yes, I have, sort of.
I used two yellow half squares about as long and thick as a sticky note, then pleated them into 1/8 strips and curled them into rings. I applied MC to keep it's shape, and in the morning "wore" it to school for "wacky day." The size was about 2 centimeters in diameter, which worked fine, but my ears aren't pierced and I had to balance one end into my ear and hoped it looked real. It seemed to work.
I'm sorry if this wasn't helpful.

Not what I had in mind. I still appreciate the information NeverCeaseToCrease ;).

Anyone else :)?
