ORIGAMI JEWELLERY Certification Course


Exclusive expression by Art Clay Silver Paper Type

The greatest characteristic of Art Clay Silver is to become metal. The new certification program is to pursue a good combination of wearable strength as jewellery and folding expression of 3D ORIGAMI Art. Other than just folding, you can learn more techniques like new way of adding gold accent, texturing, bezel making, and finding attachment. Surprisingly, finished works with structural design are much lighter than they look.

What is 3D ORIGAMI?


ORIGAMI is Japanese word for paper folding. "Ori" means fold and "Gami" means paper. ORIGAMI is well known in the world as Japanese traditional craft and it has been played by many different generations and coutries. History of ORIGAMI as hobby has started from Edo era. Even before, people in Japan had used papers to wrap important things such as Kimono clothes, gift or money for special occasion. ORIGAMI is really rooted in Japanese tradition. Modern ORIGAMI was appeard after the world war and ORIGAMI art works have been sophiscated to artistic level from hobby. Now, the modern ORIGAMI has been evolved as "3D ORIGAMI" by research and technology of limitless folding patterns. The combination of the modern ORIGAMI and technique of Art Clay Silver makes brand new "ORIGAMI JEWELLERY".
