Paper necklace and earrings

I constructed this necklace and earrings from thick watercolour paper by using the origami flower fold technique (which is usually used to make books, not jewellery ...) I stained the paper with black ink, then dribbled bleach on here and there, and used a bamboo pen, dipped in bleach, to write the words.

I should probably spray something on to seal and strengthen it, but I feel it is not quite finished yet. I have an urge to stitch through the 'pages' with black embroidery thread. What do you think? Any other ideas?
