Origami Jewellery For Men!

Easter holiday has finished and my husband went back to school as he is an English teacher(well, he is doing teaching practice until May.). He was a bit depressed this morning about having to go to work after a long holiday and the maths test he had to take after school didn't help at all >o<   Even though he wasn't having a chilling out holiday as he needed to prepare his lesson plans, he enjoyed his days off I think.

Anyway, what made him less depressed was this Origami tie pin made by me.  He doesn't wear it everyday but he went to work wearing this today :)   It's origami shuriken(Ninja star) design.

When I saw him wearing the tie pin I thought it would be nice to show you my origami jewellery lines for men. These were a Christmas present for my Dad last year and I gave my Mum red origami crane earrings. I wanted to try a different design as well as Shuriken design so I made this Menko design tie pin. Of course they were so pleased with my presents and loved them so much :D

At the moment, I'm not sure about selling the origami tie pin as our general line unless I get a bespoke order but it's a possibility that I might make some and take them to the next craft fair ;)

Thanks for reading, I'll write again soon.

They are such a good idea and you should definitely take them to a craft fair. I would wear them (but I don't wear ties).

Great idea! I've never seen this done before so I think you should definately go ahead with it. I know especially around Christmas people are looking for gifts for their boyfriends/husbands and can't find anything unusual.
