You can make gold, silver and copper pendants easily by yourself, if you follow this ible. The only difference is that these pendants are way lighter than the real ones! you can fold and shape them with your hands! This ible will show you how to make stylish origami leaf pendant in few easy steps. You may also take help from this (origami leaf) ible.
So, collect as many chocolate foil wrappers as you can and start makin'em!

If you like this ible, please do vote for it in the Jewelry contest, I would really appreciate it :)

Step 1: Materials needed

To make this origami pendant you'll need:

  1. Chocolate or candy foil wrappers (any color you want, I had gold, silver & copper),

  2. Paper/fabric stiffener or white glue and water mixture (50:50),

  3. Craft wire,

  4. Jewelry pliers,

  5. Paint brush.

(For best results, use foil wrapper that has an inner layer of paper as shown in the second picture of this step)

Congratulations!!! Finalist !! You are a winner for sure :)
Thanks! very excited :)
lovely! I voted for you.
Ohhww, thank you! :)
Awesome!! I have got to try this! I went to your other origami 'ible, and I must say, these leaves are so much better! You have done yourself proud with this 'ible! While not durable enough for daily wear, for that special occasion, I could see a pair of unbelievable earrings from this! Again, congratulations on a great 'ible!
Ohww, thank you sooo much! I came up with this idea while making the origami leaf with colored paper, I knew it wouldn't be durable for daily wear, but they turned out sooo beautiful and I had to give it a try. I'd love to see your earrings :) <br>Thanks again :D
these look amazing but i wonder if there is a way to make them more ridged and sturdy. the foil doesn't seem like it can take a small beating.
Thanks! the usual foil wrappers don't work, I've tried, so I used the chocolate foil wrappers (except the golden one), which have an inner layer of paper (or something like that!).
try dipping the pieces in clear acrylic paint
Thanks, that's a very good suggestion :)

Really stunning! I voted, of course :)
Aww, thank you soooo much. :)
Um I'm confused as to what the paper stiffening stuff is. Is it glue? Do you apply it to the back before you start folding? I've never seen candy bar wrappers with paper in them. It must be something from outside the states. <br> <br>Still an amazing technique and the finished pieces look amazing. At first glance it looks like worked metal.
You can search online for homemade paper or fabric stiffener recipes. Use anything that could stiffen the wrapping paper, apply the stiffener on the inner layer &amp; try dipping the finished piece in clear acrylic paint for better result. <br>The galaxy chocolate bars wrapping paper has an inner layer of paper (I made the copper pendant from it). <br>Thank you, happy to know you like'em :) <br>
I love this, but wont they bend easily???
Thanks! they don't become much sturdy, but if you use a good amount of paper stiffener it won't bend, try dipping the finished pendant in clear acrylic paint for better results.
