Elimon: tarjetas en Origami y kirigami... which translates to: cards in origami and kirigami.


Me: "Kirigami is a variation of origami where the artist is allowed to make small cuts in the paper (from Japanese "kiru" = to cut, "gami" = paper)."

I love the rose earrings so much! I wish I could buy these, but the blogspot page does not offer any sale, nor a store in Colombia. All the earrings (aretes in spanish) are adorable.

I would love to have these pieces, because I know that nobody else would!!
