Warwick artist Lisa Cullen has mastered the art of fashioning paper into attractive jewelry.
Her bracelets, earrings, and necklaces are super-durable – even waterproof – because they’re treated with resin. Bracelet, www.lisacullenart.com; jewelry also sold at Bertoni Gallery, 50 Main St, Warwick; www.bertonigallery.com/warwickâ€‹â€‹

Yarns: assorted wool, mohair, angora, alpaca, cotton and acrylic; fabrics, 100 percent cotton;
