Our first featured artist is the designer-maker Marta Cunha. She is originally from Portugal, but now calls Liverpool home. When she realised that origami could be more than a hobby, and that her origami pieces could be made small enough to be worn as unique items of jewellery Dark Horse Origami was born!
All the jewellery is created from handmade origami using Japanese washi paper which has been varnished twice, becoming lasting and water resistant.
Marta has also recently started making pure silver origami earrings and pendants.
