Cinnamon Origami Earring

A guy at my yoga class today said that if these were edible he would eat them. If they were made of cinnamon I would tend to agree with him. Alas these are made of paper and to be honest I think they taste far from spicy-sweet cinamon hearts you get on valentine's day.

These are another mini pair, about the size of a dime, and are accompanied by sterling silver flowers with opal beads.

The name opal is derived from the Latin word opalus, meaning seeing jewel. According to another theory the word opal comes from upala, a Sanskrit word simply meaning a stone. It is the birth stone of Libra. And in ancient times opal was accepted as a symbol of faithfulness and confidence.
