Fay Lim donates part of the turnover to the non-profit organization Stop AAPI Hate. # k5abend

BOTHELL, Wash. – Origami cranes are tiny folded works of art, and now you can wear them as earrings.

Cranes for Peace is handcrafted in Bothell by the jeweler Fay Lim.

She was inspired to create them to publicize the rise in violence against Asian Americans.

The tradition of the 1,000 cranes stands for the fulfillment of a special wish, luck, luck and is often used as a symbol of peace.

A portion of every sale is donated to Stop AAPI Hate.

Each crane in Lim’s collection is made from washi – traditional Japanese paper – that comes from a 25-year-old private collection.

Lim encourages customers to take pictures of themselves with the earrings on for a section of their website called Cranes in Flight.

Cranes for Peace is $ 60 and is available online through the Bellevue Art Museum and in person at the Schack Art Center in Everett.
