Thank you for your good words!
I saw that you are interested in jewelry. I had made small origamis and a friend of mine made them earrings! You can do that too.

Waaaaay back when I was in elementary school I made a tree decorated with several cranes made of 25mm (1") colored foil squares, and it received an award in our school's art competition. The cranes took some time to get right, but they looked like jewelry.

I tried to make some of these a couple of years ago, but my much larger fingers got in the way! Kudos to you!

OMG, does this bring back memories! Back when I was in college, I had a Chinese roommate who taught me how to fold origami cranes. We would sit watching movies and fold cranes! After a while, we would challenge ourselves, and our tiny cranes were made with a 1/4 inch square of paper. Slightly smaller than yours. What fun, and what a nice memory. Thank you for that!

Hi! Thank you for your kind words. I saw your projects. I like your work. A good idea would be to make an origami crane using wood and hinges. You know well how to work with the wood.

Incredible! I'm sure with my fat fingers I'd go nuts trying to replicate this. Well done! : )

Thank you for your nice words! It is not that difficult. You can use the paper cutter to fold the paper ( the edge of the cutter must be at the fold line). You can also use a needle or a nipper.
Thank you again!
