tyvek jewellery

I came up with another idea for the jewellery rather than being a book. I have decided to make the jewellery out of tyvek (a tear-proof, waterproof paper) as it has similar qualities to paper but is much more durable and will make better jewellery. I plan to create a pattern that can be cut around the sides and removed to wrap around your neck or wrist. The jewellery can be cut to any shape or different designs can be layered to create new looks. I have worked on a few designs based around tattoo imagery so the jewellery can be a new form of body adornment, a way to wear tattoo designs without the permanence or pain of a real tattoo.

The pieces will look like the image above, the rectangle that surrounds the design can be cut out to allow the user to pull out the jewellery.
