Product description

With precise instructions and vivid, four-color photographs, Ayako Brodek shows readers how to create 40 elegant and unusual pieces of jewelry. Each project includes a list of materials, illustrated step-by-step folding and finishing instructions, a beautiful photo of the completed piece, and suggested color variations, paper designs and embellishments to make each piece exciting and unique. The book opens with sections on choosing paper, equipment, basic folds and bases, and making the piece that then become building blocks for all of the modular and beaded origami jewelry designs featured in the book. There is a section on finishing techniques, followed by the main part of the book, the Directory. Author Ayako Brodek has organized the Directory by seasons and motif, and includes a section of Traditional Japanese Designs as well. Each project is coded by type: (F) Figure; (M) Modular; and (B) Bead. For Spring, readers will learn to make the Butterfly brooch/pendant, hairpin, bracelet and earrings; The Flower Bouquet brooch; and the Chick & Egg brooch/pendant. Summer offers the Sunburst brooch/pendant and matching earrings; the Seashell brooch and earrings; and Beach barrettes. In Fall, theres the Leaf brooch/pendant and earrings and the Pinecone necklace and earrings; and for Winter, the Festive foil beaded bauble necklace and earrings, and the Star brooch/pendant and earrings. In Traditional Japanese Designs, readers will find favorites like the Crane brooch/pendant, tie tack and earrings; the Kimono brooch/pendant and earrings; and the Paper Fan brooch/pendant and earrings.
