Paper Jewelry - Rely Designs

I was introduced to the eye-catching folded paper jewelry of Elisa Ridolfi via Twitter. She's an interior designer in Verona, Italy who also creates collages and special occasion cards, but today I'll be focusing on her unique brooches, pendants, and earrings.

Geometric Paper Bow Brooch

Bowties are fast becoming the new owl, fox, or mustache on a stick! Elisa's colorful brooch would be great on a jacket or pinned to a purse. She protects the cardstock with glue and varnish to give it durability and shine.

This patterned kusadama necklace has such a graceful shape.

Origami Flower Necklace

These twisted earrings are intriguing - I have no idea how Elisa gets the folded columns to swivel uniformly. The clear amber beads add a pretty finishing touch.

Twisted Paper Earrings

This octagonal safety pin brooch would bring a dramatic glint to a jacket lapel or scarf.

Folded Paper Brooch

Last, but certainly not least, sweet cherry earrings... made of rolled red paper, Elisa completes them with sterling silver hooks and little leaf charms.
