Origami Peace Crane Mobile by AMG Design Studio

From bold origami jewelry earlier in the week to a delicate origami mobile today...

AnnMarie Gallivan describes herself as a lifelong student of art and a practitioner of yoga and meditation for the past ten years. She enjoys creating a variety of ethereal mobiles that feature layered paper blossoms and perfectly suspended origami cranes. I think it's safe to say making mobiles is part of her meditative process.

This particular tranquility-inducing beauty is AnnMarie's interpretation of the Japanese cherry blossom tree. It features Swarovski crystals, pearls, and hand painted and gilded leaves, along with folded flowers, cranes, and butterflies.

Find AnnMarie via her website and Etsy shop.

Here's what's been happening on the ATP Facebook page this week:

I'm looking forward to spending time outside again this weekend now that our heat wave has broken, and hope it's nice where you are too. Have a lovely one!

  1. So very pretty!
    We still have a heatwave here. It's pretty permanent really, lol!

  2. Oh Ann, isn't that just beautiful? It reminds me of a little bonsai tree my grandmother used to have, from China - every leaf and flower was made from a semi-precious stone, and it shone in the sunlight! This is so gorgeous...

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog - you are most welcome, and most deserving of a blog award! There's always so much of interest on your blog, and I can never get over what people actually create from paper. (Never forget those amazing paper eyelashes lol lol!)

    I'm so glad you are enjoying my blog. One of the great things about sharing awards is that we get to explore so many blogs and make new friends!


  3. That mobile is beautiful.
    We've had rain the last few days (finally) and it's kind of on the cool side today

  4. Love, love, love this! Thank you for posting.

  5. Really really beautiful. There is so much here to admire. Thanks for the link to quilled portrait Ann.
