Mechanical Paper Hearts ~  Frank Tjepkema has created a collection of intricately designed hearts out of paper. Made to look mechanical, they are stunning pendants that represent the complexity of the heart and the feeling of love.

Mechanical Paper Hearts

Designer Frank Tjepkema, or Tjep, has created a line of jewelry, called "Clockwork Love Paper" that will light up even the coldest heart. Using paper and acrylic, Tjepkema carves out the mechanical parts of a clock and layers them to create.

This is a garment by Ashleigh Smith. She uses Origami to create the triangles on this dress and connects them all together. I have chosen to look into Smith because she uses a technique that I would like to use. It looks like she layers paper on top of paper to give the triangles more texture. I am also looking into simple shapes to create using origami as well.

3D Paper Manipulation
