Sharing Japanese art and tradition through jewelry 🌸

Ever since I was little, I have had an interest in Japanese culture due to the multiple visits to the country with my family. During one of these visits, we visited Hiroshima and learned about the story of Sadako and the thousand paper cranes.

In Japanese folklore, they said that a person who has folded 1000 paper cranes is granted either a wish or eternal luck and happiness. Sadako, a Hiroshima bombing survivor, aimed to create a thousand cranes but sadly passed away before she reached her goal. Now, the paper crane is used as a symbol of world peace and hope.

This story and the myth behind made me delve into the wonder of origami and how one can create so many designs from a single piece of paper without needing anything else! I wanted to show off the beautiful pieces that can be created and share the story behind them, as other origami designs also have a story behind them and/or used traditionally throughout Japanese history. This led me to start creating origami jewelry, in the hopes of spreading my love for the art 🤍
