Chaerea's Profile

About

My jewellery is made with real dried plants and/or oriental paper.
The leaves are picked from my garden and the neighborhood. They are dried, painted and made into collage pieces with oriental paper. Some don’t have leaves but are Japanese Yuzen and Unryuu paper collage. The collage pieces are glued onto glass tiles or embedded in resin or bezel to make the necklaces or earrings. Each piece is hand made by myself, and one of a kind.

I was fascinated with this story when young. I began using his name as an alias on the internet. So I used "chaerea" when I created my Etsy account, although at that time I was only interested in buying.
When I decided to open the shop I considered using a name more relevant to my jewellery but I decided to stay with Charea when I realized all my other accounts use that name.
