Thank you 2016 for all the wonderful people you’ve made me meet, for all the places you took me to, for all the great joy you brought into my life and even more for the fails, the tears, the deaths and resurrections, for all the metamorphoses that happened behind the skin.
Welcome 2017! You’ll be even better cause we’re older and wiser! 🙂 I just can’t wait!!! 😀
And, at the end of this year, a thought of gratitude goes to all of you who appreciate and support my work! Thank you all!!!
I thought it would be interesting to mention the music that accompanies me in making jewelery. Because music is also important to me and I think it is, somehow part of the process.
So, lately I left myself drifted into deeply misterious realms of delicate poety and sound by the music of David Sylvian.
This is an interview for Look Plus TV, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
The National TV channel Antena1, was interested about the paper beads, how they are made and the story behind them. 🙂

After a too long and groundless absence, here I am again with a brand new and fresh Summer collection to inspire you and to add to your joy of living.
Wear it in the sunshine on the beach, wear it in the evening breeze on the shore, wear it around your neck or wrist, play with it, make it your own personal delight.
The paper beads are varnished so they do resist in contact with water but it’s reccomended to keep it away of shower or something like this, to enjoy it longer.
The thread is waxed cotton, very resistant as well.
I combined the paper beads with sea shells, sea stones, wooden beads and, some metal beads, here and there 🙂
Have fun with it!!! 😀
Counterpoint is the name of my latest collection of earrings.
As composers were combining very different musical lines in order to achieve a higher expression of the music they envisioned, so I tried to combine, in this collection, old musical sheets with wood, glass, bone beads, gemstones and chains to make them sound like music and to make you feel special. 🙂
As you got used by now, all the pieces are carefully designed and realized, the musical sheets are protected by a layer of varnish, so they are resistant to water, but I wouldn’t suggest taking them in the shower, even though I know music sounds wonderful in there 😀
So, enjoy it!
Primul meu interviu despre margelutele din hartie reciclata: septembrie 2011, pentru ClujNews
“Are 30 de ani, s-a nascut in Braila, a urmat Facultatea de Litere din Bucuresti, iar de cativa ani s-a stabilit in Cluj-Napoca, unde duce o viata asa cum isi doreste, adica inclinata spre artele frumoase. Desi trebuia sa fie profesoara de romana, Carmen Orasanu prefera sa priveasca lumea prin obiectivul aparatului de fotografiat si sa faca efemere podoabe de hartie.
Carmen Orasanu, alias “Molia mistica”, si-a facut intrarea in lume la unul din targurile de produse hand made organizate in Piata Matei Corvin din Cluj. Acolo, pe un stand oarecum inghesuit, si-a aranjat cuminte colierele pe care le confectioneaza din… hartie. Margelele sale sunt un experiment, pentru care isi lasa imaginatia si fantezia sa zboare de fiecare data, realizand modele unicat, imposibil de reprodus cu exactitate. Desi a fost pentru prima data cand si-a scos la vanzare creatiile pe taraba, tanara s-a declarat incantata dupa targ. “Credeam ca margelele mele de hartie sunt un ac in carul cu fan, dar feedback-ul pe care l-am primit a fost chiar pozitiv. Se oprea lumea si ma intreba cum sunt facute, iar unii isi aduceau aminte ca si ei la randul lor au facut margele din hartie cand erau tineri”, spune ea.” citeste in continuare
