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! 🙂
