Because You're Ugly: Origami Jewelry
Finally: A non-ugly way to incorporate the Asian aesthetic into your everyday wardrobe.
(Oh, stop that—Mandarin collars? Not so awesome. And chopsticks in your hair? Not even close to the real thing. Please stop. You look fucking silly.)
These charms and pendants crafted by origami guru Cindy Ng are actually fashioned out of single sheets of silver and folded the same way you'd fold their paper counterparts, but without all that finger fumbling and crumbled up paper.
Available in a variety of critters—frog, rabbit, crane and turtle—the charms are somewhat reasonably priced and available for purchase online at Ng's website, Finger Magic.
