Confession time: one of my biggest fears is that the aging process will punish me for wearing doorknocker-size earrings. I really, really do not want to be an old lady with saggy earlobes.* Neither does Leela Morimoto of LeeMo Designs. Her collection of lightweight earrings is fashioned from origami and lasercut acrylic to create beautiful statement pieces without the heft.
I fell in love with the clear acrylic Oridama earrings. Doesn’t it look like the crystallized pattern of frost on a windowpane?
Check back later this week to go “Behind the Baubles” with Leela and a chance to win a pair of diamond-shaped origami Ayano earrings. (I’m fond of the blue and white pair.)
*Instead, I really, really want to grow up to be like Iris Apfel. Have you seen her HSN line?
A huge thank you to Leela for sending over the earrings!
