Mayumi Fukuda has combined the delicate art of origami and the creative craft of jewelry design to create a bespoke collection of products.

I have taken the course and thoroughly enjoyed it. The lessons move along at just the right pace, are well-organized, and are packed with information. Have a look at the trailer:



If you're an origami novice, you'll learn to create unique paper jewelry, and if you're already familiar with jewelry-making, not to worry... it is always enlightening to see another artist's process in action.

Sample Reviews

This course is incredibly fun and incredibly inspiring. The step-by-step instructions are very detailed, so you can easily create the most beautiful pieces of paper jewelry yourself.
I love how Mayumi took time to honour the history of origami and shares her influences in making her design. The sample is short and easy. Inspires you to go beyond the basic!

I absolutely loved this course, Mayumi Fukuda is excellent at explaining which materials and techniques to use, as well as why and when to use them. There are also so many additional resources for materials and tutorials that are outside the scope of this course so you can continue to explore origami if you want to.
