two passions for jewelry

For several years, I have been making origami jewelry. Folding paper is magical. Starting from a leaf, very often square, a few folds and here is the silhouette of a bird, a bird or a fish, all this without glue or scissors!
Since I retired, I have resumed woodworking that I had stopped for lack of time. Many years ago, I had made marquetry, models, especially boat.
Making jewelry was a no-brainer and I bought precious pieces of wood, exotic or European.
I like to imagine a model, try with different woods, and then make it!
Sanding is an important moment. Often the wood is transformed, veining appears. Touch is essential in this phase. This softness that is finer and thinner once I arrived at extremely fine paper grains (200, 400, 600 and up to 1000)
Then the finish, waxed varnish gives dignity to the jewelry finally finished.

Lately I have imagined some wood jewelry, with an origami pendant. I am in the early stages. I hope to surprise you soon with new creations
