Papermode's Folded Paper Jewelry Giveaway

By on Monday, October 12, 2009 27 Comments

Pen to paper Part 1 of 3
Woo-hoo! A double giveaway this week celebrating this special theme Pen to Paper.

Did you know for the longest time the best anyone could do was to  fold paper in half only 7-8 times? But in 2001, Britney Gallivan whilst still in high school, rose to the challenge in math class and figured out how to fold paper up to 12 times!

What is also inspirational is the ability to fold tiny pieces of paper so they become attractive jewelry. It's not an easy task but one which the makers of this giveaway do admirably well. Papermode on Etsy is the brainchild of two Rhode Island friends now operating out of both Rhode Island and Paris, France. Camille is actually from France who studied in the US.

The above exquisitely folded paper stud earrings could be yours if you leave a comment below anytime from now until 8 am, Monday October 19.I will pick the winner using random.org and post both giveaway results as soon as possible after.

If you want an extra entry, sign up for Papermode's newsletter here. To make things easier for Camille who is in the process of moving, please let me know by commenting below if you also did that.

Do check out their blog and  Etsy store. Here are some of my favorites. Their limited edition hoop earrings (below) which add color and fun to their pieces.


Their folded paper beads are like jewels on their headband designs!

They also add bead features to some of their designs, making them truly unique!
