Synopsis

Don't just fold and look at your origami - wear it! Create elegant and exquisite pendants, pins, earrings and more using traditional folding skills and simple jewellery-making techniques. Available in a dazzling array of colours, patterns and finishes, origami paper is far too pretty to leave gathering dust on a shelf.

Each project includes a recipe of materials, illustrated step-by-step folding and finishing instructions, a beautiful photograph of the final piece, and suggested colour variations and ideas for adapting the design and adding embellishments.



Create brooches and pendants from traditional origami designs such as cranes, frogs and kimonos; stunning starburst pins using modular techniques; beautiful origami beads for necklaces and bracelets; delightful lantern and flower earrings.



All folding and finishing techniques are clearly demonstrated from basic folds to adding embellishments and coating for durability. Projects are graded from easy to challenging, so that even beginners can start making beautiful jewellery straight away.

Ayako Brodek's love of origami started when she was a little girl. On long ferryboat rides to her grandparents' home in Shikoku, her mother made origami cranes and boats from candy wrappers to chase away the boredom. Her fascination with origami continued, and after thirty years of folding for personal enjoyments she founded OriCraft to introduce her origami creations to a wider audience. Her focus is on designing origami works of art that can be loved and used in everyday life. Wearable origami is one of her biggest passions, and she has devoted considerable time to exploring ways to transform origami objects into exquisite and durable jewellery. She sells her work at art and craft shows and through her website. She also teaches origami to all ages at local libraries and schools.
