“I’m excited to be part of the Edmonds Art Walk at the Cascadia Art Museum and be able to introduce my new 2022 spring collection of Washi Origami Crane earrings,” Casion Jewelry founder and designer Fay Lim said. “This partnership has helped expand our outreach in sharing our message of using art for peace while inspiring more individuals to support ending the violence against AAPI.”

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

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

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