Origami Jewelry Review & Giveaway

Origami Pendant
Origami Jewelry: Easy-to-Make Paper Pendants, Bracelets, Necklaces and Earrings by Michael G LaFosse and Richard L Alexander released October 27, 2015 by TUTTLE Publishing. Learn how with a few basic craft shop supplies - glue, wire and paper, you can make your very own origami jewelry. This 80 page paperback and DVD provide comprehensive instructions for making custom paper jewelry and gift boxes. Diagrams with text and/or a professionally made DVD take you clearly through the folding sequences of each objet d'art. The DVD menu lets you skip easily from project to project. Includes sections on back-coating the paper for more durability, cutting and trimming papers to size, adhesives and glues, and wire work. One-on-one with the worlds best - you cannot go wrong. I made the above pendant by folding a single 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" square of handmade Japanese paper, I just love it. Get your copy below!
