Washi Paper Jewelry

This product line started with the 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.

Ultra-Fine Silver Jewelry (99.9% silver)

The process of making the ultra-fine silver origami jewelry starts with a special material that consists of silver mixed with a binding agent. This makes the silver pliable for folding. The material is handfolded into tiny pieces of origami. These pieces are then heated in a kiln. The binding agent burns off, and all that is left is the utra-fine silver.
