Origami Jewelry Giveaway from Little Ray of Sunflower

 Congratulations to Sami Garra (@samigarra), giveaway winner!

Oh I do love autumn giveaway season here at ATP because it gives me the opportunity to feature artists I've met throughout the year... and I use the term met quite loosely. Raya Sader Bujana lives in Barcelona, Spain, but due to admiring her social media updates and exchanging emails I feel as if we are, at the very least, compatriots in paper with an admiration for pretty things.

Origami Earth Necklace Giveaway

Raya makes an array of origami jewelry, as well as party and home decor for Etsy shop Little Ray of Sunflower.

Origami Leaf Necklace

She upcycles paper from advertisements, flyers, outdated maps and books in elegant ways and even makes her own packaging from otherwise discarded paperboard.

Let's play a game! 🎉 Hidden in this pic is tomorrow's giveaway prize from Raya Sader Bujana of Etsy shop Little Ray of Sunflower... can you spot it?

You can see skills learned while studying architecture at university shining through in her projects. Raya admits to being a perfectionist and says she creates each item as if she would be keeping it for herself.

Paperboard Camera

She welcomes custom orders... a batch of paperboard cameras were made for photography company employees and the hand painted paper blossom was requested as a unique engagement ring that led to a collaboration with a silversmith.

Recycled Paper Blossom Ring

In addition to managing her shop, Raya works as a freelance store window designer and art director for photography and video projects.

Store Window Display Featuring Folded Paper Airplanes

She makes origami gems in all sizes... from tiny rose rings to giant-size diamonds.

Origami Rose Ring

Origami Gem

The geo ball ornament is perfect as an ornament. Smaller ones can be strung as cake toppers or large ones as garlands, and...

Origami Geometric Ornament

...as you may have realized, the Origami Earth Necklace.

Origami Earth Necklace Giveaway

Consider that each geo ball is composed of six origami units that are folded and assembled - with tweezers, no doubt! Raya delights in making miniatures. See what I mean...

The stop motion product videos Raya creates with photographer and film maker Leo GarcĂ­a MĂ©ndez are incredibly clever. I can only imagine the hours they take to make, but are so worth it.

Now about the worldwide giveaway! Raya will be sending an Origami Earth Necklace to one winner. It has been folded from 1960's world maps, measures a bit less than 3/8 inch (about 1 cm), has a glossy varnish finish, and hangs and slides along a 16 inch (41 cm) sterling silver chain.
