Re-recycled

Papelier is a studio in Bucharest where enthusiastic people are recycling, reusing, remodelling paper, in an artistic manner, trying to keep the planet a little cleaner and safer. They are very active, taking part in many artistical events and launching themselves in many interesting projects. You can check out their activity here: https://www.facebook.com/AtelierPapelier

So, as a manifestation of their positive inquisitive nature, popped up the question “what kind of jewelry can this Mistique Moth reveal from our long and carefully processed paper?”

And here’s what she did:

It was so wonderful working with this paper… I could feel the texture of mixed fibers… I couldn’t use a cutter as I usually do; I tore up the papaer, acrefully, by hand, so you can see the uneven edges that give the bead an organic look. Of course, I couldn’t varnish them either, their fragility adding much to tehir special charm.

So, yes, these are just the firs two pairs of earrings created out of this unique handmade paper made by  Papelier studio.

Extremely delicate, extremely soft and light as a feather. ❤

This show must go on! 🙂

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. I am happy every time you choose to wear the Chiramó paper jewelry with dignity and joy. Go green! Wear Paper Jewelry! My jewelry is available on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ChiramoJewelry?ref=profile_shopicon Thank you! :) View all posts by Chiramó Jewelry
