Lovely New Designs from Mayumi Origami Jewelry

Longtime readers will remember creative artist Renata Mayumi and the stylish origami paper jewelry she makes. In fact, our first collaboration on this blog began back in 2014 when I was first drawn to her work on Pinterest. I've enjoyed bringing her newest designs to my readers since then, and today is no exception!

An Etsy Star Seller, Renata has sold more than 1500 of her richly colored jewelry pieces online. This number doesn't begin to account for the many earrings and necklaces she has sent to galleries and museum shops or sold at in-person markets in Germany where she lives. She is one well-organized maker.


What I especially love about Renata's work are the modern styles, unusual findings, and the attention she pays to each detail. The jewelry is so light and comfortable to wear, water resistant, and arrives perfectly made and beautifully packaged.


Meet the Newest Designs

 Spike Earrings



Both the Spike and B earrings (top photo) are created with durable Japanese washi paper and are protected from water splashes by the application of non-toxic, acid-free varnish. 


While the tiny, understated Hanami floral earrings (below) are not paper, I'd be remiss to not include them too. They are made of 925 Sterling Silver. Hanami, by the way, refers to the Japanese tradition of celebrating cherry blossom season.

Since the last time Renata was featured on this blog, Mini Mosaic earrings have been also been added to the Mayumi Origami shop (where shipping is free on quite a few items). As the name implies, they are more petite than her popular Mosaic earrings, which means they are more tedious to fold. Each Mini Mosaic measures 3.5cm x 1.7 cm; mosaics are 4.5cm x 2.7cm.

Choose from a variety of patterned or solid color papers that Renata sources from around the world, a number of which have gilded highlights. She offers several metal choices for the findings as well.

Note that shipping is quite slow between Europe and the U.S./Australia at this time, however, Renata's jewelry is truly worth the wait. European customers should receive their orders within 10 business days upon shipment, and if you are in Germany, within 2 days.

Renata and I agreed that it would be fun to team up for this giveaway... she will send a pair of Mini Mosaic Earrings custom made in the paper of the winner's choice ($42.59 USD value) and I will send one of my gilded paper Celestial Flower Necklaces (let's consider it priceless since I don't sell my quilled jewelry) to one lucky winner worldwide


This necklace is one of my favorite designs to make for friends and family. You can make it too, via my how-to book, The Art of Quilling Paper Jewelry.

Yes, the winner will receive BOTH prizes!
