Fibre-tissue paper earrings

Remember my rice paper earrings? This one was made the same way... From a piece of a new kind of violet-colored paper I found in a bouquet wrapper... It looks like tissue paper but is more fibrous and difficult to tear. Do you happen to know what it is called?

I have used a handmade wire loop of 22 gauge wire, pearl metallic acrylic colors and kundan stones. I have tried to give a rustic look by dabbing the paint rather than applying it smoothly. Have not sealed it yet but hope to do it tomorrow night (read as after my son sleeps.. :))

How is it?
