Miss Chopsticks Origami Jewellery
Miss Chopsticks is the label from Sydney based jewellery designer Parry Yang. She was born in China and raised in the small seaside town of Shantou where she learned the art of origami as a child.
Miss Chopsticks’ beautiful handmade origami jewellery takes us back through time to the age old craft of paper folding. Origami is an ancient art form practiced widely in Japan and now worldwide. It quite literally means paper folding. The art's origins took root during the early seventh century, as the technique of paper making was introduced to Japan by China.
Miss Chopsticks Origami Jewellery began from Parry’s passion for miniature pieces and from the positive response she received when people saw her miniature origami designs that she initially created as a hobby. Parry has put in a considerable amount of effort and skill into hand making these small and intricate creations. Her range of earrings is affordable to all whilst reflecting quality and workmanships.
Each handmade origami is created from a traditional paper made from the long inner fibres of three plants Koze, Mitsumata and Gampi. Each intricate origami piece is coated with protector layer that gives a long lasting, sophisticated finish.
