The Indian Leaves Collection will always and forever be my favorite as it was the first collection I created for Baaliyan by Katy.
It all started 6 years ago when I first began experimenting with paper crafts and came across this beautiful design which had already been tried out by other talented artisans in the craft community. The art of origami was one I hadn't experimented with before and I was in awe with all the beautiful designs other crafters had experimented with. Three months later I finally found the perfect fold and sealing technique which made my earrings both durable and weather proof.
A common question I am always asked is how long will my earrings last for if they are made out of paper? The simple answer is this: Anything will last for a long period of time if you take good care of it. These paper earrings have been varnished with a special sealant which protects them against humid weather conditions and also creates a hardened surface which prevents the paper from wearing down easily. All earring hooks used are Nikel free which also makes them hypoallergenic. If you are like many members of my family and have sensitive ears, the earring hooks can easily be replaced so you can still wear your favorite pair of earrings.
All Indian leaf earrings currently come in a medium and large size and are as light as... paper! :)
Designs and quantities will vary throughout the year and only a limited number of each will be available so if you like a pair please do get in touch as soon as possible.
