Paper Jewellery ?

I’ve just started a concept developement class at college  which encourages development of ideas for future work that can be related to current major studio practice or entirely unrelated.   For a while, I have been thinking about  breathing new life into my “failed” proofs  by transforming them  into wearable jewellery.   The print may be a failure but will still contain some beautiful moments and mark making.   I  am trying to capture these marks on the surface of hand rolled paper beads as an initial inquiry into my idea to turn my prints into jewellery.  I made some proto type beads  this week.  It’s cool to be taking my printmaking into an entirely different realm and finding a use for my scrap papers.  Might have to pop into the Jewellery studio at college this week !  Many jewellery related questions buzzing round my head !
