Quirky Jewellery: Origami Safari

I have forgotten how difficult it is to take photographs of silver jewellery on a bright and sunny day! Especially on a white background! But I just had to show you these cute little origami necklaces* that I got this week! 

I have seen a lot of origami jewellery floating around for the past few months and I'm unsure where the design originates from but there's plenty of choices out there at the moment. John Greed Jewellery is where my two necklaces are from. I wanted to pick the cat necklace (naturally!) but I didn't think it looked obvious as one, so I chose a horse and a flamingo - and sure enough, there's no mistaking those for anything other than a horse and a flamingo!

As some of you may know, I used to run my own jewellery shop (I miss it every single day!) and I sold a lot of quirky pieces that allows someone to represent their personality through accessories. I'm still an absolute sucker for cute and quirky jewellery, but I've definitely toned things down a bit. I don't wear as much colourful accessories anymore, but I still love wearing pieces that are cute and unique.

The Origami Safari range are white gold plated silver, on a 40cm-45cm chain. The necklaces are £19.95 each and the earrings are £15.95 for a set. 

To see the full range of the Origami Safari jewellery at John Greed, visit their website and keep your eyes peeled for new additions! I'm excited to see what animals are going to be added to the collection! The origami charms are so cute and dainty!



  1. These are lovely! The flamingo is beautiful and they're such a good price. I love doing origami so I think one of these would be perfect for me. Time to drop some hints.

  3. These are adorable! I used to have an origami swan necklace but it wasn't very good quality so didn't last well. I love these though - I think the Birdie is my favourite from the collection but they're all so cute and different. Bookmarked! xx
