Luis Acosta has transformed paper into jewellery – take a look at these necklaces and bracelets:

He write about his work:

As a designer he is particulary interested in forms. Once a form is found, he enlarges or repeats it. Then he concentrates on using the possibilities of that form as a basis to develop a design.
It’s important to work with both shapes and colour. The first gives dimension to the design while the second provides warmth. One way of doing this, is to ‘play’ with a shape and several layers of different coloured handmade paper, which sometimes gives rise to an intriguing hybridization, conjuring up the impression of something plaited.

You find more of his work at his website.
