Beautiful Jewelry!
I have always loved jewelry ever since I was a child. Now, I'm a beginner in wire-wrapping and want to evolve into doing more things. I have collected a bunch of wonderful pieces of jewelry that some amazing jewelry-makers here on DA have made, either because they are beautiful, they inspire me as a jewelry maker, or even both!
So please enjoy the following pieces, and remember to check out their full galleries if you like what you see here!

Fold here...
How did you get started doing your origami?  
Origami as we know it's paper folding art. Why origami? Well it begins with amazing works made of paper which appeared in my classroom (it will be about 3 years ago). I asked a Math teacher which exposed her works to suggest me some easy diagrams (some kind of instruction how to fold it step by step) with interesting design. I didn't expected that boring, for me (in this time), paper folding could be so amazing and astonishing. I felt in love with so many variations of one design. I like the possibilities of colouring them by expanding them with coloured paper sheets. Also I was surprised that I can fold it everywhere. I don't need to bring with me lot of heavy things, just some paper sheets in my metal pencil case. Also I don't need to much time for one unit, up to 5 minutes for one and it depends on it's complexity. Of course I'm folding in free time so it's my hobby and for now I won't go of it.
