January 2014: New Year. New Origami Jewelry Creations.

Happy New Year World!  While Christmas came and went as did 2013.  With the New Year comes new beginnings and a chance to reflect on the previous year.  2013 was an amazing year for FoldIT Creations and it was all due to the endless support of friends, family and strangers from across the globe.  This year I’ve shipped to China, Japan, Australia, France, Mexico, Ukraine and just about every corner of this not-so-flat Earth.  My jewellery has seen more countries than I have at this point.

Toronto is filled with snow and cold weather these days so I am spending a lot more time inside and that means a lot more time creating in my little workshop (aka living room).  I am leaning more toward the fine silver line these days.  While I love the colours and prints of the Japanese paper, the silver is something special and allows me to preform a little modern day alchemy by marrying mystical and healing gemstones with animal totems.  I really love it.  I have also acquired a metal stamping kit this Christmas thanks to a very special santa clause who has been creeping the items in my Etsy cart.

Anyway, enough chatter.  Here are some pics I took of the things I have been making recently and things now up in the Etsy shop.

FoldIT’s First Fine Silver Origami Crane Necklaces

Finally after what seemed like eternity waiting for my PMC sheet silver and Kiln which were held up in customs at the Canada-US border, they arrived over the weekend and I didn’t waste a minute.  I was pretty happy to get them photographed and up in the shop before Sunday was over.  The first pair of fine silver earrings and necklace sold within 2 hours of posting the listing.  I am still waiting on my cabochon gemstones from Thailand and a few other tools before I can begin setting stones in my work.  Check out the etsy page for more.
