I made some origami out of pages from my parents' old novels. I really like this ring, something about the browned paper and the Chinese printing inspired me to make this Smiley The paper is sealed with layers of varnish for durability.

That's gorgeous. I can't believe it's made of paper and varnish. I love that it has special meaning too, and isn't just an insanely beautiful ring.
P.S. It rocks!

How did you do that???

oh wait ... I think I know ...
At a craft fair I learned to make a lotus with paper, yours just like it except for the leaves.

Thanks! This model consists of 6 modules, I modified a model my friend taught me years ago.

did you just glue the flower onto the ring?

A perfect cocktail ring! I love the pearl in the middle. A larger version with a big jewel or something in the middle would also be such a glamorous hairpiece! I love it when an item can go really big and attract attention, but still be so elegant! Things like this are so pretty and unique; I'll bet you get noticed and complimented on this ring all the time.

Oh yea, a hairpiece would look nice too! I love unusual combination of materials, who knows old, yucky book pages would go with an elegant pearl? Cheesy

Lovely!!! Your ring is beautiful and the idea of making a hair piece with the lotus flower is great, you should do it.
