paper jewelry

a while back i read about these amazing all year rings and was so intrigued -- jewelry made from paper?


[created by tithi kutchamuch -- see more work here]

granted, these are a little avant garde for my taste. but check out some of these other cool paper jewelry finds! definitely more wearable.

from funnysky -- the butterflies are made from folded japanese paper:



from frucci design -- made from hand-folded paper. i can't even imagine working with something so tiny!:



and of course the scrabble tile trend that's going around -- click here for a great tutorial from makes and takes. my friends have all made these with photos of their kids, but you can use any type of paper on the tile [this one is from the it's all about the prints shop].



i think i might actually wear some of these. jewelry that's handmade AND paper? sign me up.

have a great weekend everyone!

  2. Paper jewelry is a neat idea, but I don't think I could get away with it here in Houston, it would sweat right off me, lol. I think I need to wait until winter.
