Hello dears!

Some of you may have heard, some don’t of the Repair Cafe concept, the place where people meet trying to repair, recycle, repurpose things in order to reduce consumption and waste. There are places like this in many cities around the world and people have good time together, learning new things and skills and getting back home with an item ready to use, and which they no longer have to throw away.

Happily there is something like this in my city, Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Generous and devoted people like Dan, Adela, Ovidiu and all the volunteers and supporters around them are trying to give this opportunity to our local community.

This week was the celebration of International Repair Cafe Week and many interesting events were happening relating to this subject. Here you can find the detailed programme of Repair Cafe Cluj Week.

Among them, there is an upcycling evening, this evening, 21st October, in a nice downtown cafe, Doamna T, (no10 Napoca Str.), where I was invited, along with other tallented craftsmen, to try to make new thinhs from old yarns, clothes, papers etc. You can bring with you any old “rubbish” that you have, old T-shirts, scarves, yarns, papers, whatever you think will fit.

For my demonstration you don’t need to bring anything as I will provide all the necessary but, in case you have some paper that you like and want to try something with it, don’t hesitate! Also, if you have old, broken jewelry that you still love and don’t want to lose it, bring it here and I’ll try to save it for you.

So, I gladly invite you to join us on this adventure! It will be great fun I can assure you!

I’ll come back later with some pictures.

As I expected, lovely people, warm atmosphere, good tea and cookies and great enthusiasm for rolling paper 🙂

Thank you all for coming and making this a wonderful evening!

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
