In the spring of 2016 I developed severe arthritis in my neck and sadly had to give up my then hobby of patchwork and quilting. I needed a new creative outlet and after finding that I could do origami….I wondered if it was possible to make origami jewellery? After some Goggle research and time practising and developing a way of working that produced pieces I was happy with – my wonderful Paper2Pearls business was born. I started selling at local markets and on Etsy and to my delight people started buying my jewellery.
In April 2017 I cheekily sent in an entry to Small Business Sunday, a weekly competition run by Theo Paphitis – and was amazed when the next day I discovered I was one of that weeks winners! In 2019 I noticed that my book jewellery – by now I had about 5 books in my range, was proving much more popular than my other origami jewellery. I decided to move to just offering this along with pieces made from vintage sheet music. As well as my ever growing range of book jewellery (made by purposing old books) and because I can get a bit bored folding tiny bits of paper!!! – This year I’ve widened my range to include pieces made from old plastic bottles, bubble wrap and DVDs with more materials to come.
So, here we are…..welcome to Paper2pearls – an award-winning environmentally-friendly jewellery shop – with a few gifts thrown in as well – all available online.
