Congratulations to Lilli Blackburn, giveaway winner!
I first featured Renata Mayumi's sophisticated Mayumi Origami Jewelry almost two years ago in this post, and am delighted she is offering a giveaway in time for Mother's Day. Renata's array of geometric designs continues to expand, and I'm in constant admiration of the unique findings she uses to create each piece.... for example, these stylish Spike necklaces.
Renata, who lives in Portugal, works with an international medley of papers including Japanese chiyogami and lokta from Nepal. She keeps an eye on current trends... silk tassels and long earwire earrings are popular and figure into her latest collection. Here are more examples of her richly colored pieces...
Mosaic Earrings and Pixel Cube Necklace with Silk Tassel
And now the giveaway! Renata will be giving both the Golden Artichoke Necklace and Black and Gold Spike Earrings you see pictured below to one lucky winner with a U.S. mailing address in time for Mother's Day gift-giving.
The Artichoke Necklace has a nickel-free antique gold brass chain that measures 31 inches (80 cm). The Spike Earrings have nickel-free, gold-plated brass posts and measure almost 2 inches (5 cm) in length. These pieces are light as a feather, yet durable.

Renata does not have a website (yet), but you can purchase any of the jewelry styles you see here or ask her to create a custom piece in your choice of colors by contacting her at email@example.com. Prices are reasonable, ranging from $18-27 (16-24 euros). Payment is via PayPal. I can personally assure you that the jewelry is beautifully handmade, packaging is exceptional and shipping is efficient - my order arrived within five business days.
By the way, Renata doesn't just fold paper... she has been busy creating a new line of origami-inspired earrings from 925 silver with black zirconia accents that are so pretty!
