'Fashioning Origami' merges accessorising with the constructive art of paper folding, sharing with readers the legend of folding symbols, history and benefits of origami while teaching readers how to fashion dozens of different paper motifs, combined with beads and other jewellery findings to create charms, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and key fobs.
Very few books unite jewellery making and origami, thus Fashioning Origami will be unique among books addressing this subject. Author Julian Laboy-Rodriguez will introduce readers to dozens of different origami creations and many different folds and then demonstrate how to turn these paper motifs miniature, pairing them with jewellery findings for fun and gift-worthy accessories. But there is more to origami than just folding paper. It's the perfect hobby for a stressful world.
'Fashioning Origami' will also address the misunderstanding that origami must be delicate because it's paper. Julian will also show the reader how to create a crisp and sturdy feeling with the right products and simple science.
