Paper Planes

I was watching the Twitter feed float by the other day when I stumbled across a gem of a Youtube video (I think it may have been Briony who tweeted about it – shot B!). It’s a short film, made by Disney that introduces a groundbreaking technique which seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques. I must be honest, that didn’t mean much to me but when you watch it you will see that the gobbledegook in the previous sentence just means that it’s amazing. It’s nominated for an Oscar and the frustrating thing is that it seems to have been taken off Youtube and only the trailer remains..

Cute hey? I’m assuming because the Oscars are soon they have removed it? Ek weet nie.

But what has this got to do with jewellery I hear you asking? Well, who knew paper planes could be an inspiration for jewellery? A very talented jewellery designer, Megan Fogarty from Oh Dear Megan must have thought so when she launched her new paper plane inspired jewellery. I tried to get more information from Megan herself but alas. However, it does not stop us from looking at the beautiful pieces she has come up with!

How gorgeous is this paper plane ring?

The jewellery and the design just works. Beautiful lines and well-crafted pieces make this collection one to look out for! As far as I can see, Oh Dear Megan will be at Design Indaba but best you follow her @ohdearmegan (all the piccies were taken off Twitter so follow her for more sneak peeks) or find her on Facebook or her website http://www.ohdearmegan.com for more details on the prices and where you can buy these gorgeous pieces.
