Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding but actually originated in China around 102 AD. After paper became more available, the art of origami remained mostly in China for hundreds of years before it was introduced to Korea and Japan. At one time, origami was considered to be so important as an art form, it was taught in schools.

With all the beauty that a simple paper crane can create, it is no surprise that one of the best known jewelry companies of Arnaud & Claire are capitalizing on this with origami earrings, bracelets and necklaces. The French designers have truly made one of a kind jewelry with literal paper jewelry being sold that come pre-folded into iconic shapes such as the swan and the deer.

The idea for the jewelry came one late night when Clair and Arnaurd’s good friend Masayuki Muraki decided to teach them about the ancient art. They were so engrossed, they wound up staying up creating endless possibilities of what shapes to make next. 

Inspired by this, they went to various Japanese companies to scheme on how to apply this art to jewelry with the first piece completed in 2008. This was the 'Tsuru' which is a traditional symbol of peace in the Orient.  The Origami Jewelry has been sold worldwide and remains one of the company’s biggest sellers.
