About Us

Inspired in my youth by the story of "Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes" which tells of the true story of Japanese girl Sadako Sasaki who developed leukemia from radiation caused by nuclear bombs dropped on Hiroshima. Sadako was motivated by her friend and the Japanese legend that one who creates a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish. Her wish was to survive her disease and to join the school's running team. Though Sadako succumbed to cancer, her goal was achieved (by her own hand, as her family tells it, or by her friends helping her complete the remaining few hundred) and she has granted hope to millions and restored the power of the legend of the thousand paper cranes.

When I moved to the Netherlands, the first bird I saw up close in the wild was a beautiful, majestic crane. I knew it was a sign and immediately went home to fold a paper crane in hopes of fulfilling my wish to inspire others.

Everyone has a spirit animal in whom one can find strength, wisdom, courage, empathy, guidance. I create a range of origami earrings in which to find your spirit animal: crane, elephant, owl, and butterfly.

LuckyOrigami was launched to bring peace, hope and good fortune to as many people around the world as possible.
