Ann Martin of All Things Paper points us to the stunning work of paper artist Li-Chu Wu who creates breathtaking pieces of jewelry from paper and metal.

Her work is all about paper and layers; using multiple layers to create subtle movement and tactile qualities. Applying a mix of metalsmithing techniques and new technologies her designs consist of a series of paper silver, one-off wearable pieces and body adornments. Her work not only shows the values of material itself but also recreates the link between the material and its original source in the environment.
