While working as an English Teacher in Seoul, South Korea, I was constantly given small paper gifts by my grade 5 & 6 students for various occasions. I was amazed by how small and intricate these origami designs were and how much time and patience went into crafting them. A small collection began to build up on my desk as months went by and I became curious about the process of jong-ie-jeop-gi (Korean name for origami).

In December of 2011, I traveled to Japan to spend Christmas with an old university friend who was living there. She gave me a set of Japanese yuzen papers as a gift and I was hooked. I went back to Korea and spent all my free time at work learning to fold dragons, parrots, narwhals and butterflies. It became an obsession, to take this little piece of paper and have infinite possibilities as to what I could turn it into.

One day after uploading some pictures on Facebook of impossibly tiny cranes, my Auntie messaged me requesting that I turn some into earrings for her. It was like a light bulb went off in my head, a practical use for my obsession. And that is how FoldIT Creations came into being: a gift from a friend, an obsession with making beautiful things and an idea from an Auntie across the ocean...it was meant to be.

My creation process:
I use hand-folded up-cycled fine silver reclaimed from old computer circuits.  I first fold the shape with the precious metal clay and attach any sterling components like bales or bezels.  I air dry the clay overnight and then fire it in a high power jewelry kiln for about an hour leaving you with a 99.9% pure silver form. I use a high powered dremel with steel brush and a fine book-binding needle to clean up the silver and get into all the intricate folds. I then polish the silver with a polishing cloth to remove any finger prints or oils from my hands to prevent oxidization. All jewelry is individually hand-folded so each is slightly different and no two folded cranes are exactly alike.
