Silver Origami Fish Jewelry
Fish are a traditional sign of boys and men in Japanese culture. "Boy's Day", or Tango-no-Sekku, is held on May 5th of every year and families traditionally put out signs and banners with fish on them to celebrate.
Origami fish are symbols of peace and contentment. Japanese koi goldfish are found in many serenity ponds.
The fish was an early symbol for Christianity, because Christ was a "fisher of men". Even in modern times many churches use the symbol of a fish to represent their faith.
Origami goldfish are great for giving out to teachers or students. A group of fish is known as a "school" and for that reason fish are often used to represent both the instructor and the instructed. This is great for both formal classes and for the mentors and guides who help you through your life.
Do you love fishing? A silver goldfish is the perfect emblem for any fishing fanatic. It can be a good luck charm to help you find and catch the fish, or a celebratory memento of that special trip.
This silver origami fish is hand crafted by me in .999 percent silver, hand-fired in a programmable kiln. It is about 1 3/4" long, 1 1/2" high and flat.
The silver fish has a loop at its top for hanging on a necklace. You could slide a pin through that loop and wear it as a pin. You can also run a cord through the loop to hang it in a window or on a wall as a decoration.
If you are fond of gemstones, I can mount a gemstone bead beneath the fish's base. Turquoise is a popular color for fish.
I can customize your silver Fish with any gemstone in my gemstone listing.
This silver origami fish is created with PMC. PMC is a special "clay" created in Japan - a thin melding of actual pure silver with a clay binder. I carefully hand-fold this clay into the desired shape, let it harden for 24 hours, and then fire it in my kiln.
During the firing process the clay burns away, leaving behind only the pure metal silver. The result is a beautiful piece of jewelry which can be handed down for generations!
Please let me know if you have any questions about PMC clay, origami, or the history of the fish in various cultures.
Have a wonderful day!
