Chevron Necklace

Last Fab Friday we revisited childhood via paper fortune tellers, and today I have another grade school reminiscence for you. Remember folded gum wrapper chains? I collected enough wrappers to make a chain wayyy longer than I was tall, and can still conjure up its delicious Juicy Fruit scent... ah, memories!

Marbled paper necklace

I love the reincarnation of a paper chain as stylish jewelry. Manuela of Manufacta in Sicily created this sand and sea colored necklace with beautiful hand marbled paper from Florence. She also shows some eye-catching, crimped paper jewelry in the shop, but the majority of her work is in perfect sync with the current V-shaped chevron craze. No gum chewing required!

This is very stylish and the paper used looks gorgeous. I have no idea how you find all these Fab Fridays, (and your other finds) but glad you share! Thanks, Ann!
