Her paper jewelry is amazing and as she states, ” I love to convert everyday materials to wearable pieces of art.” How great is that to take what other people would toss out and make into something so beautiful. Not only is it beautiful but it makes a statement that says “I care about the environment.”
I have always loved paper beads and have used them in some of my jewelry designs. She inspires me to want to get back to using more recycled items in my jewelry. I have always tried to be environmentally conscious when designing a piece. Many times when I visit an antique or vintage store I will find pieces of old jewelry that I can use in my current designs.
Here are a few more of her pieces for your viewing pleasure!!!!!! Also, please remember her for holiday gift giving or maybe your first anniversary is coming up. As she points out in her shop introduction, paper symbolizes the first wedding anniversary.
❤ This ring is a favorite of mine ❤
Her attention to detail and love of color can be seen in this pair of colorful earrings!
