The Beginning of The Paper Age

It was 2011 New Year’s Eve. As I was looking for inspiration on the net, I came across this fantastic idea of paper beads. I couldn’t believe they can be so beautiful… And what a strange and good idea to make beads, jewelries out of things that so far I was throwing away like useless things. Right away I began to cut a 24Fun magazine and made my first tormented but colorful paper beads. I was so excited and continued to feverishly twist and paste until morning. To me, the fireworks had no fantasy compared to the paper beads. So I spent my New Year’s Eve playing with paper. And that’s how I stepped into this year, with glue on my fingers and colors in my eyes 🙂

Then I found out that paper beads saved African women in Uganda from poverty, that there are a lot of people doing this, that there are a lot of varieties of beads that can be achieved, infinite jewelry designs… a lot of interesting things to be explored and discovered.

Here are my first shy paper works:

About Chiramó Jewelry

Chiramó Jewelry explores paper as a new medium of expression in making jewelry. It aims at highlighting the uniqueness of each woman and affirming the attention we give to the environment, even in this aspect of our life. Each paper item is subjected to various treatments in order to achieve the desired aesthetic result. In the end it is varnished several times to protect and strengthen it. My play with the paper beads started in 2011 and since then, the fascination of seeing the refreshed beauty of such a banal material as paper under my hands is still alive.
