Make a Statement: Stunning Floral Paper Cut Jewelry

I love coming across a paper artist who is doing something completely fresh and modern. Such was the case when I spotted the lacy paper cut floral jewelry that Hong Kong artist Jeanie Ho creates in Sydney, Australia. After briefly featuring her Plucking Peonies shop earlier this season in a paper jewelry round up, this week I'm pleased to host a giveaway of Jeanie's hand cut earrings to draw even more attention to her fine work.

After completing art degrees in Hong Kong and Australia, Jeanie traveled to Japan where she was inspired to cut sakura (cherry) blossoms. She uses strong Yupo paper that is impervious to water and also tear resistant, and has gone on to cut interpretations of other flowers such as peonies, tulips, and chrysanthemums.

Jeanie's statement earrings might feature just one dramatic flower on a sterling silver wire or two, three or more flowers. Each creation takes hours to complete. She offers the option of a comfortable stainless steel clip for those who don't have pierced ears.

But if you aren't an earring wearer at all, Jeanie has shown designs on her Plucking Peonies Instagram feed that include a floral brooch and a necklace composed of native Australian flowers.

Note that the listings in the Plucking Peonies shop are for single earrings, not pairs. This is because Jeanie designs them to be worn asymmetrically. However, she understand that some wearers would prefer a matching pair so offers that option as well. Because of the hand cut aspect though, no two earrings will look exactly the same.

Jeanie works full-time as an artist on paper cutting, embossing, and sometimes performance art. Her next exhibition will be in October in Hong Kong. Keep a lookout on Instagram as she will be sharing more information as the opening approaches.
