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

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.


Romance Collection

The following creations are for women with no fear to express their feminity, women who understand that it’s all about falling in love…

All of them are handmade and designed to fit different expressions of feelings.

I used especially recycled wraping paper and paper from old callendars and magazines.


Hippie Collection

Since I claim myself a hippie, you’ll see that this reflects in my work as well. So, I decided I should gather all this items in a distinctive collection. Through its art, its culture, its philosophy, hippie gets closest to my idea of beauty. There are some few other things though, of which I might talk in another future post.

So, hope you’ll like the collection and feel the vibe!

This necklace will cheer up our day with its vivid colors and joyous design 🙂
