Cash Jewelry
The Sophie Kemp Currency Rings are Made from 12 Global Notes

Why use money to buy jewelry when money can be the jewelry? The Sophie Kemp currency rings were designed in response to an interactive design seminar she attended in which she was asked to redesign the parameters of a common interaction. Kemp chose the everyday universal interaction of giving and receiving money. Kemp used 12 different currencies from around the world and turned them each into rings using traditional origami methods.

Kemp explains her reasons as follows: “I decided to take the cold cut process of giving people money and enhance the experience of this action. I decided to take a dollar bill and use origami folds to make it into a ring as the giving of a ring has such emotional connections. I then made these rings out of 12 different currencies.”

Although origami rings may be nothing new, Kemp’s take on them is both interesting and thought-provoking.
