Paper Jewelry

So cool, right? From bangles incorporating tight stacks of paper disks to pieces with paper chains or beads, there are tons of colorful, creative options on the market.

All ideal picks for a first anniversary, they're way more interesting and fun than anything you'd find at your local office supply store. You might just find yourself wanting to unwrap some paper!
