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.

Hey all!

So I have been busy playing with my new kiln these last few weeks and learning to set stones in my fine silver origami jewelry.   I am quite satisfied with the result and will be selling these new creations at several upcoming pop-up shops and markets here in Toronto.  Here is the FoldIT Creations holiday line-up.  Come out and have a  browse and find some stocking stuffers and great handmade gifts made by local Toronto vendors.

Experimenting with PMC origami jewelry

So recently I have been interested in getting into more silver work.  After a little research I discovered PMC, or precious metal clay.  A clay based silver material bound to an organic moldable compound that when fired burns off leaving one with solid 99.9% fine silver product.  Luckily it comes in thin sheets that can be folded like origami and adorned with gem stones and texturized or stamped.

I went on a little shopping spree online and bought a bunch of PMC, gemstones, tools and an electric kiln, the easy bake oven of jewelry artists.  Now I have to sit and wait for it all to arrive from various parts of the world.  I’m so excited I thought I would share some pics of my shopping hoard, as well as a few photos of other PMC jewelry.

Cheers.
