New to the Emporium - Yuris Good Luck Origami
I love it when I find a crafter that does something really different and special!
Yuri was born in Tokyo, Japan, but now lives in Peterborough, here in the UK, with her husband and three children.
She creates handmade Japanese dolls with high-quality authentic Japanese paper, called 'Washi'.
Each doll is designed along the lines of 'Good Luck Dolls', known as Kokeshi Dolls - they are full of good luck and each is completely unique, with the paper hand cut and folded and their enigmatic faces drawn by hand.
These dolls are then gently attached to high quality card, blank inside for your own message. They can be removed for use as a lovely bookmark or luck token - they are sturdier than they look!
We have doll cards to wish you luck, happiness, a wish come true, congratulations and more.
Take a look at the lovely dolls we have available by clicking any of the images or here - none are duplicates and each is completely unique and original. I'm sure you'll find one perfect for someone special.
