Oh my gosh! What a week! It’s Saturday night and I’m folding more tiny origami crane post earrings for Mother’s Day orders to be filled and shipped by Monday morning. They are going to new homes as near as the GTA (Greater Toronto Area where I live) and as far as New Zealand.
My Etsy shop this week was abuzz with a flurry of new followers, likes and orders. A treasury featuring my coral-colored crane post earrings made the front page of handpicked section on Etsy. So, for a short 30 minutes or so, anyone who visited the Etsy homepage anywhere in the world saw my earrings pop up. My iPhone Etsy app was going off like it was no ones business and when it rains it pours!
I’m so thankful to Jihye Rim of Suwon, South Korea who created the treasury that featured my earrings; the ripples of which are still being felt days later with more shop likes, followers and treasury features. A million Thank Yous Jihye!
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!
