My new favorite origami design is actually a simple one. The 8-point modular star. When I learn a new design that can be turned into jewelry I usually become obsessed with that one design for at least 2 weeks. I fold it over and over until it is imprinted into my mind and I could do it with my eyes closed. It is border line obsessive behavior. There is something satisfying to me about modular origami; folding multiple pieces that interlock to form a solid, sturdy geometric form.
The following link is to a youtube video for all you DIY people who want to try it. Keep in mind, the actual video is for making a Christmas ornament, but its the general design thats important. It’s really simple, you just have to have patience, time and some awesome chiyogami paper. Fold On!
