Design and Make: Paper Jewellery - Book Giveaway

***This giveaway has ended. Scroll down to see who won!***

Another giveaway so soon? Crazy, but true!

Sarah Kelly's paper jewellery caught my eye when I first began blogging... I posted about the striking laser cut necklaces, bracelets, brooches, and earrings she creates for her company, Saloukee. Since then I've been following Sarah's career with interest and was delighted to learn she was working on a collaborative book, Design and Make - Paper Jewellery. (Note: I'll be using the alternative spelling of jewelry throughout this post in deference to British Sarah :)



At last the book is available in the U.S. and having had the opportunity to thumb through it, Sarah definitely doesn't disappoint! I've enjoyed poring over the inspiring photos of avant-garde jewellery pieces created by paper artists from the UK, U.S., Spain, Thailand, Japan, Israel, Costa Rica, the Netherlands, China, Germany, Finland, Italy, Austria, Turkey, Belgium, and Australia.

Besides featuring a huge collection of feast-for-the-eyes images, the 128 page, softcover book presents techniques such as paper sculpting, molding, cutting and binding, crocheting, and encasing. Each chapter begins with step-by step instructions and accompanying photos as presented by one artist. The chapter's content is then followed by a gallery where high fashion, runway jewellery is shown alongside more modest, yet unique and completely wearable items.

For example, Sarah shows how to create geometric folds utilized in her origami jewellery designs and Paula Tew explains the art of stitching an exposed-spine binding using repurposed paper. There is also a helpful glossary of paper terms and a brief interview with each chapter artist at the conclusion of the book.
