Florence handmade paper earrings -limited series-

This Summer I had the chance to spend one month in Tuscany, enjoying the mighty silence in the coutryside, the overcrowded cities and the refreshing seaside. It was a great inspiration holiday and also a time for charging my batteries with new, good, positive energies.

In Florence I came across many stationer’s shops with a workroom where they realized different objects from handmade paper on spot. They make handmade paper in a large variety of styles, with different handmade prints and patterns.

Although I usually work only with recycled paper, as a ruling ethic , this time I couldn’t resist the tentation to have a try on this special, very appealing papers. I only bought one shit of beautiful dark olive green with golden and silver winding pattern.

I tried to highlight as much as possible the qualities of the paper, avoiding any extra ornament that could have been distracting.

So, here is a series of earrings that came to life under the Tuscan sky, in a very calm and pleasant atmosphere, from exceptional materials.

I enjoyed very much every step of the process, from the acquisition of the paper until the last touch of the final piece. I hope you’ll like it and enjoy it at least as much as I did.

Little March alias Mărțișor :)

As Romanians, we cannot conceive the coming of Spring without its symbol, Mărțișor.

We are all very eager for Spring to come, counting down  the days until the sun will gently caress us again with its gentle rays and flowers will explode around us in a madness of colors.

Spring inspired me as well to create this paper Mărțisor collection in the shape of a stylized flower who will bring joy and good  luck to women wearing it.

Enjoy!

The Music in You

Hello everybody!!!

I have a new collection of earrings called “The Music in You”. They are made of old scores and I dedicate them to all those talented women who, unlike me, have musical skills. I really envy you, in a good way, and I hope you’ll find my earrings like a tribute to your work. I have more variations on the same theme but, as I promissed myself and to you, all of my jewelry is one-of-a-kind. You can trust that!

So, let the music play!

And, before ending this post, I dare to invite you to listen to this part of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concert No.2. It makes my hair stand on end every time I listen to it. Hope it will do the same to you! 😀

In addition to this post, I would like to show you my latest bracelet on the same theme, Solfeggio Bracelet.

It is a little bit more sophisticated, more delicate and feminin. It is assorted with a combination of gemstones like green amethyst and purple jad, little purple glass beads and some semitransparent ones.

The width of it is 3,5 cm and the length is adjustable.


Funny, colored paper earrings

Lately I’ve been experiencing with this little wheel-like beads, trying to exploit every possibility they offer.

So, this is how I came to these funny earrings, in the style of the Turquoise Spiral that I posted some other day. These  are more coloreful, funny, easy to wear, easy to match with your clothes due to their multicolored style.

Twisted Words Around Your Neck

Now I have the pleasure to introduce to you a necklace very dear to me. It is charming by its simplicity and its antique, vintage feeling.  Twisted words, wrapped around your neck or your wrists will give you a misterious, intriguing look. Simple and sophisticated in the same time.

Made of old book paper, varnished with special polish that makes it water resistant, this necklace is 71 cm plus 25 cm black leather ends.
