Where did the Tiny Shiny name come from?
I always liked shiny things and I decided use “shiny” for my jewelry company name. Also I was always attracted by small(tiny) objects, and things that sparkle. So I thought “tiny” and “shiny” sounded good together. I decided to name my site and company Tiny Shiny.
I created my first origami earrings in 1995. I wanted to make something special for my friends. I thought something Japanese would be suitable. I had Origami paper and beads. So I decided to try making jewelry with the materials I had. I experimented with many different forms.
Finally, I came up the Crane and Fish Earrings. I like small things so I tried to make them as small as possible. This is how I came to create my Origami Crane and Fish Earrings.
