The inspiration behind this brooch derived from this video, by soul-pop group Quadron. Since origami is such a huge part of my art, I especially gravitated to this video with a huge liking for it. To begin this process, you must begin by making the components in which you will assemble at the end.
Step one consists of making the small triangular shapes which can be found here. Using a thin paper is advised, because if you use a paper that is too thick, then folding certain shapes will be nearly impossible. I used pages from the Free People catalogs. Secondly you must make origami fans, which are the core of this project. You may find the directions here. Make sure that whatever size paper you use, the triangles stay smaller than the fans.

After ten years of working as a commercial illustrator, Stockholm based artist Stina Persson has abandoned her digital safety net to create a new collection of unaltered and imperfect watercolors titled Perfectly Flawed. Persson lets the colorful paint drip where it may, allowing her pieces to become untamed and natural while giving them a stunning 70s aesthetic.
This timeless briefcase was Dave Munson’s very first design for Saddleback Leather Co. He originally designed the bag for himself and after receiving tons of compliments, his business was born. Not only are all the products made of the most luscious and perfectly broken in leather, they come with a 100 year warranty and the signature briefcase turns into a backpack too! As he says, “This will be the last briefcase you will ever buy, and your grandkids will fight over it when you are gone.”
