Cranes for Peace Campaign Founder Fay Lim will show how she creates the Washi Origami Crane Earrings at the Cascadia Art Museum during the Edmonds Art Walk on Thursday January 20 from 5-8pm.

The origami crane earrings were sold to raise awareness and funds to help end harassment and violence against the Asian American Pacific Islander community, a portion of every crane earrings purchase in origami will be donated to Stop AAPI Hate.

“I am thrilled to be part of the Edmonds Art Walk at the Cascadia Art Museum and to be able to showcase my new Spring 2022 collection of Washi Origami Crane earrings,” said Fay Lim, Founder and Designer of Casion Jewelry. “This partnership has helped expand our reach by sharing our message of using art for peace while inspiring more people to support ending the violence against AAPI.”

The Cascadia Art Museum partnered with Casion Jewelry in October 2021 as part of the “Cranes for Peace” fundraising campaign in conjunction with their exhibit featuring the Japanese American modernist artist’s artwork and artifacts Kenjiro Nomura of the artist’s internment during World War II.

The “Cranes for Peace” fundraising campaign offers the purchase of handcrafted Washi Origami Crane earrings in which a portion of each purchase will be donated to Stop AAPI Hate Center. This organization is a collaboration between the Asian Pacific Policy & Planning Council, Chinese for Affirmative Action and the Department of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University. The center tracks and reports incidents of hate, violence, harassment and discrimination, and provides translation, advocacy, etc.

The Asian tradition of 1,000 paper cranes represents the granting of a special wish, happiness, long life and is often used to symbolize peace. Use “Washi” or traditional Japanese paper that has been hand-treated and made in the traditional way; these cranes are also treated to prevent UV fading and are water resistant.

Washi Origami Crane Earrings are available at the Cascadia Art Museum at 190 Sunset Ave S., Edmonds, WA 98020. You can visit the website here.
