Stunning Paper Jewellery

Today I am excited to introduce Sarah Kelly and her fabulous paper jewellery.

Yes! Jewellery made from paper! Her work is fabulous and I hope you will enjoy reading about it. Thanks for joining us Sarah.

Sarah creates innovative, sculptured art jewellery made in paper under her company’s name ‘Saloukee’. She began working with paper when creating mock ups for silver jewellery and fashion accessories. It was at this point that she realised that she loved working with the malleable, ephemeral nature of paper, much more than the metals which she had been traditionally trained with.

Many of the jewellery pieces within the Saloukee collections include several hundred hand pressed rivets, intricate laser cutting and delicate paper folding techniques. Through the folding, riveting and laser cutting methods, Saloukee creates ‘talking point’ jewellery, which is designed, sourced and made in the UK.

Saloukee’s influences originate from costume history, contemporary haute couture, interiors, architecture and finding a design problem and solving it in a beautifully aesthetic way.

Sarah has received several accolades including being awarded the prize for ‘Excellence in jewellery’ by the British Jewellers Association, being shortlisted for the ‘European Prize for Applied Arts’ and receiving Shell Livewire’s ‘Grand Ideas’ Award for her innovations in design. Sarah has also recently had her first book entitled ‘Paper Jewellery’ published by A and C Black Ltd, London.

 

Please head over to Sarah’s website www.saloukee.com to see her full collection and learn more about her fabulous creations.  I have just ordered a copy of Sarah’s book, Design & Make Paper Jewellery and look forward to its arrival. 

What do you think of Sarah’s work? We would both love to hear your feedback, please leave a comment below.

Thanks again for joining us. Have a great weekend. Ruth

  1. I think I would have to hold a piece in my hand before forming an opinion. The colours are appealing.

      I am hoping to order something when the 2012 season starts here in Korcula, will give you an updated ‘in the hand’ story then. Thanks for joining us David.

  2. they look lovely- but I am so (insert your own adverb here) that I would have drenched jewelry, instead of the award winning designs they were when they started…

    Beautiful! What an unique way to make jewellery. Interesting 🙂

    • Seba Silver says:

      Hi Armi and thanks for joining us! I agree the jewellery is beautiful, I have seen some other beautiful art made from paper but Sarah’s is the first jewellery that I have seen.

    • Seba Silver says:

      I know, isn’t it AMAZING. Love what she has done and am following a few other paper creators on twitter too. Always think of paper as such a fragile thing, here we see it represented in whole new light. thanks for your comments.

      • Helz-Design says:

        i came across of thick paper furniture – but you can have very heavy paper for that … jewelery is a different league, and yes usually paper is so fragile that you think you can only use it for writing ;D

      • Seba Silver says:

        I have some lovely handmade paper from Nepal that I am going to experiment with, I ordered Sarah’s book and it has some fun ideas in it for beginner paper projects. Will let you know how I get on – maybe a good post for a ‘Whateva Wednesday’ 😉

      • Helz-Design says:

        i am soooooo looking forward to “whateva wednesday” ;D
        guess it will make a great post and must be some nice projects in it … hopefully … 😉

      • Seba Silver says:

        I am looking forward to ‘Whateva Wednesdays’ too, the blog schedule is making life a lot easier, thanks for motivating me to create a Seba Silver schedule 🙂

      • Helz-Design says:
