I like tiny, so I took 2 pieces of origami paper and cut into little pieces (1.875 cm). 60 pieces are needed per earring.

Step 1:

fold diagonally 

Step 2:

mark the centre at the buttom

Step 3:

fold centre down and up again, but slightly under the top, so you'll see a little of orange.

Step 4:

fold the sides to top

Step 5:

open one side and push down

Step 6:

fold the piont down.

Step 7:

fold the side double

Step 8:

glew marked parts

Step 9:

after drying
push each part a bit open (form the leaf)
Glew 5 pieces together to make 1 flower.
when you have 12 flowers,
glew 3 flowers together

Step 10:

now glew the 4 (3flowers) together, but don't forget to put a piece of wire in it.
Now get your pliers and make a 90 degree bend.

Step 11:

now grap the end and role it towards the corner.
place your earring in it

Step 12:

now polish it

Thanks! Tthe tool is a folding bone. I used tacky glue and fimo (waterbased) vernis to polish.

Amazing! I was going to make some origami earrings- just simple cranes miniaturized, but you put me to shame!
