I love CARDBOARD, I am obsessed with CARDBOARD, I am going crazy with a tons of Ideas in my mind for stuff that can be build using this super humble, super amazing thing called CARDBOARD. Oh.. dear I think I am being overwhelmed.
Oh Hello you creative soul out there :)
A few weeks before I published an instructable Designer cardboard photo frames, a mega tutorial
and it was loved by all of you. Thank you. During the making, I played around with those thin stripes of cardboard by making shapes like circles, spirals and some sort of cones too. There sparked an Idea of creating some jewelry using those shapes. Before getting my hands dirty I thought let's check if anyone has made anything like this or not, so I googled and found that two talented designers Yael Gaizler & Aviv Kinel from Israel
had done it beyond my imagination. They have combined this 'not so precious' (not for me :] ) & precious metals and hand crafted some awesome, out of the box eco-friendly jewelry.
I was pumped with inspiration and already had my own ideas and guess what, I have all the stuff that was required to make such jewelry and I became unstoppable :[).
What is even more cool that there was no DIY version (at least based on my search) of such jewelry until this instructable :[).
I will refer my designer cardboard photo frame tutorial a lot in this instructable, so if you have not checked it out yet, please do so, it will act as a primer for this tutorial.
Did you just buy a pair of shoes? Please don't throw the box, we will make some cool jewelry using that....you heard me LOL
Lets me show you how easy it is to make then it looks. We will make :
- A statement necklace
- A bracelet
- A ring
A complete set for that special day.
