Contemporary Layered Paper Jewelry and Home Accessories - Dani Crompton Designs

By Ann Martin @allthingspaper
Versatile artist and designer Dani Crompton describes herself as a creative who thrives on being hands-on with new and found materials. The bold ways she combines them caught my eye.

Another special thing about Dani's work is its wide range. Home decor accessories - picture frames, containers and vases, to name just a few - feature a marbled appearance resulting from layers of newsprint that are compressed, shaped and sanded.

Dani strives to bring life to unused objects by transforming them into new art that is functional and appreciated. For example, a plain glass vase becomes fresh and more interesting when torn paper pieces are pressed against sleek lines and combined with brightly painted wooden rings.

Newspaper and a stitched design give this carved wood dip dish an update while staying true to its mid-century form.

Another side of Dani's art jewelry is intricately woven pieces made with ever-so-tiny glass beads. Sometimes she combines beadwork with layered newsprint to create statement bracelets and necklaces.
