Perhaps you'll remember the lovely paper jewelry from Laura des Villes Laura des Champs... tiny cottages, windmills, and birdhouses, just to name a few of the whimsical designs.

friendly, shockproof, and UV resistant coating. I can vouch for the fact that even though the pieces look delicate, they are surprisingly resilient and
I received an email from the company's publicist in which I was asked if I would help to spread the word about Laura des Villes Laura des Champs again... my pleasure, of course! Who would refuse the offer of a piece from their stylish geometric collection?
I was delighted to receive this graphic Mirage necklace. It features neutral colors, an industrial vibe, and certainly looks three dimensional, but no, your eyes deceive you! It is completely flat with a shiny finish... definitely one of those pieces to enjoy wearing again and again. A lovely gift for any paper lover or origami enthusiast; it will arrive in a chic folded box with silver lettering.
The laser cut pretties come in your choice of pastel or bright colors. Dear folded paper boats, bird earrings, and carousels will have you reminiscing about childhood's carefree summer days. The silver or gold plated findings are very nice quality.
The new geometric line includes bracelets and brooches, as well as quite a few necklaces. I think this black and gold pendant is especially stunning.
