Since 2010, I have been handcrafting Origami jewelry; I love folding Origami and am inspired by the multitude of beautiful Japanese washi paper. Visit my Etsy shop to purchase jewelry or contact me for custom jewelry work. Follow me on Facebook for current shows in the Central Jersey/Eastern PA area!
Ultra-Fine Silver Jewelry
This product line features beautiful Origami figures folded from precious metal clay that is kiln fired, resulting in ultra-fine (99.9%) silver pieces. Each piece is embellished with silver filigree, oxidized, and hand-polished. Color is added to the silver using a special ink process, which allows the colors to naturally blend together creating unique colorations.
This product line started with paper crane earrings and has evolved to include washi paper lanterns, pendants, and bangles. Washi paper, traditionally made from the long inner fibers of three plants, is more durable and beautiful than paper made from wood pulp. All the washi paper jewelry has been coated with an acrylic sealer for added protection. The earring hooks and chains are .925 nickel-free sterling.
