Origami = Folding paper
Origomu = Folding plastic - "A movement that transforms the simple act of recycling plastic materials into a form of creative expression".
Origomu is an initiative by New York based designer Titania Pages. "Every year, thousands of plastic six-pack rings threaten the lives of shore birds and marine animals harming our environment." She asks you to "join the movement and learn how to transfer waste into beautiful artwear".
Entries into the contest are due before Jan 31st. For more information and to see more amazing artworks, visit Origomu.
Some of the pieces in there so far are amazing.
What do you think? Time for a few beers as an excuse to make some jewellery?
