Paper Plane

I make jewelry and accessories for the kid and the kid at heart. I give the 70s shrinky dink a modern spin; designing the pieces in Photoshop and Illustrator. The designs are then printed (or in some cases drawn) onto the special paper, meticulously cut, and then baked. After coming out the oven, they take their form as earrings, necklaces, rings, pins, and barrettes.

When I look at something and I want to explode because of how cute it is, that's what inspires me. That feeling that comes over you and makes you feel like a kid. A motto of mine is "If you look at my work and don't get a cavity from how cute it is, I didn't do my job."

These Paper Planes by Faheema Chaudhury flew right into the semi-finals of our Jewelry Design Challenge! Did these earrings soar right into your heart?

Darling earrings. I'd wear them and would also like them for my 14 year-old granddaughter.

Thanks for all the comments and votes! | Kat: I can make a non-post version custom order if you would like. The items would be a bit larger though. | I love making jewelry that blurs the age line. Who says you have to be a certain age to be a kid at heart?

What I thought was cute was the idea of these miniature items telling a story in this little bottle....I would buy that. I probably would not wear the items...yet I would buy a little collectible for my shelf like this.
