Crumple Design - Paper Earrings

Elizabeth Laskar and Jezella Pigott recently launched a line of playful summer earrings as the first venture of their company, Crumple Design [edit: no longer exists]. Inspired by 1960's paper dresses, Japanese simplicity and origami, as well as land art, each pair of earrings featured in the Paper Tales collection is retro-stylish and handmade in England.


EL and Jezella combine their talents - EL is an eco-fashion consultant and Jez is an artist - to create eye-catching jewelry that has minimal effect on the environment, but makes a splash as a fashion statement.

The vibrant designs celebrate nature and relate to environmental challenges. A portion of the proceeds of each pair sold goes to conservation projects around the world... polar bears, water preservation, and improving bee habitats to name a few.

Perhaps you've heard of 60's British fashion siren, Twiggy? She would have been right at home on magazine pages modeling these op art-inspired lovelies.

Jez and EL use high quality, responsibly sourced paper, non-toxic glue, and sterling silver to make the earrings. Nearly every component can be recycled - although I can't imagine turning in the sample earrings they sent to me. I expect they will look great for a long time to come!

If you happen to be in Oxford stop by the OxFork Cafe to see a window Jez and EL collaborated on that features colorful, origami-inspired birds - wearing earrings, of course!
