Back to the Paper Chase!!

By now, most of you know I am obsessed with making jewelry from tin....but I began making jewelry out of paper.  It's almost like a treasure hunt looking for interesting patterns in magazine pictures or gorgeous scenery in vintage postcards.  After copying them onto heavy paper, they are cut, placed in settings and sealed.  This necklace is going out to a friend in North Carolina soon.  The bracelet was crafted from a postcard background from delicate.  More paper designs soon at my Etsy store,!! Come visit!


  1. These are simply beautiful and elegant!! It's so cool how the paper is from a 1912 postcard!! Using paper expands your jewelry making horizons so much. You can even incorporate words and sayings into your designs by using old newspapers, letters, etc. That's something I wish I could do with my photo jewelry... I have to start thinking outside the box. Thanks so much for sharing your blog and your inspiration!!

  2. It's so much fun to look for different designs.....I have found them in the craziest places, too! The words...that's a great idea!!
