guest star friday #48...malou paul

i found today's GS, malou paul, (netherlands) on flickr. i have a new fascination with medals and i'm also interested in the use of unusual materials and stitching in jewelry. i think malou's corrugated cardboard medals are wonderful! i like that they are constructed with every things like staples and that she has peeled away at the cardboard to reveal the ribbed texture underneath. malou seems to experiment a lot in her work by playing with and combining all sorts of materials, especially ones that seem worthless or have been discarded. she also has a series of stitched cardboard pieces that i also really like.

thanks for reading.
