Process

All pieces for Folia Design SF are digitally drafted and then laser cut at Tech Shop in San Francisco and hand assembled. I use a combination of laser etching (surface burning) and laser cutting (burning through) materials that have been carefully selected for their strength, durability, and etching qualities. In addition, Folia Design SF strives to be environmentally responsible and uses sustainably harvested, renewable, and recycled materials whenever possible.

"This geometric design has an architectural sensibility. I swooned over the laser-cut bamboo and gold-filled hardware crafted by San Francisco-based Folia Design. Part city grid, part Mondrian, all style." http://www.dwell.com/products/laser-cut-earrings.html
