Li-Chu Wu - Paper Jewelry Artist

I came across the work of Li-Chu Wu while googling paper jewelry and found her unusual designs to be nothing short of fascinating.

The pieces are uniquely modern, composed of many concentric layers of high quality art paper, often set in silver. I can't help but marvel at the workmanship - how does she do this?! Laser, dies, by hand? Li-Chu describes her technique only as a combination of metalsmithing and new technologies.
