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! 🙂

Jocul cu margelele de hartie

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
