The Olympics may begin with a torch but you wouldn’t want to bring it around these Olympic-themed beauties.
Raya Sader Bujana specializes in paper art, almost a kind of sculpting if you will. She has a page on Etsy where she sells her handmade jewelry – yes, all made from paper (with layers of varnish to protect it) – with different themes. Her work began mostly as paper food products and has evolved to many different categories (below). She even encourages customers to submit new ideas for her to create.
Bujana has also created Olympic figures from this method (below).

Each figure is cut from nearly 150 different pieces of paper to create a layered effect and in my opinion a topographical map-like surface. All of her work is very creative and uniquely configured, and clearly popular with many people as she’s been featured in many blogs and has a pretty strong following.
I hope this sparks some new and creative ideas to get you start creating!
