About folditcreations

Sales 21,099
On Etsy since 2008

Handmade, wearable, paper inspired art.

Hi! My name is Gavin. I make origami inspired jewelry and accessories from beautiful silk-screened Japanese papers, hand-folded PMC silver and 3D printed precious metals.

I fell in love with paper folding while working as an English teacher in Seoul, South Korea. After traveling several times to Japan on my school breaks and acquiring a large stash of chiyogami papers, I decided I needed to make something beautiful and practical with them.

In 2012, after returning to Canada, I started folding simple origami paper crane earrings and a few limited designs. Over time they became more complicated and smaller and the materials I worked with expanded to silver.

I truly love what I do and I aim to show that in the quality and detail of my work.
I am inspired and motivated by the story and symbol of the paper crane and the different connections it has to my customers.

Returns and exchange details
Purchases may be eligible for refund or exchange within 30 days of purchase. Items must be returned undamaged with original packaging and all additional shipping costs are the responsibility of the buyer.

Refunds are for the retuned undamaged items only. The cost of shipping is non-refundable and varies by region. Shipping costs are deducted from the total cost of the item refunded.

In the event that an item does not arrive and confirmed lost, refunds will be issued no earlier than one month after the shipping date as sometimes things arrive later around busy times of the year and we want to ensure that the item is indeed lost and not just late. We do not offer refunds on delayed or stolen (marked as delivered) mail as this is beyond our control.

If you did not receive your order, for reasons such as lost mail etc. and you request that I send a replacement item, this is order is no longer eligible for refund if it also does not show up. When the original package does not arrive, the buyer has the option of a full refund or to request an item resend. In cases where in the second package also does arrive FoldIT Creations is not required to issue a full refund as the second attempt voids any possibility of a full refund. Partial refunds may be available on a case to case basis, but only on the item cost, not shipping costs.
FoldIT Creations is not responsible for mail delivered to a wrong address as input by the customer. We trust that the customer has provided us with the correct information to get the item to them. If the item is sent to an incorrect address and it is the fault of FoldIT, we would be happy to correct our mistake and ship out new replacements.
