Upcycled bits of history.

We're three girls with a passion for all things handmade!

Papercrane Studios is the post- graduation dream of a theatre design degree and some liberal world-traveling. Our artist/curator/maker KC, seeks to combine traditional jewelry aesthetic with industrial sensibilities- nature and machine, recycled/salvaged goodies with found treasures from around the planet. Every piece KC creates is unique, and has already developed its own character & lived a previous life. Those pieces now come to you ready to live a new adventure!

    Hey, you know that one quote about finding a job you love, so you'll never have to work a day in your life? Do you think that's a reasonable goal? I certainly hope so.

Shop policies

Last updated on September 18, 2016
Durability, safety and aesthetic are important to us. Before we consider each piece finished, we give them all a little test-run for any fraying, edges or insecure parts. We line anything that needs a little more comfort, and we coat anything that might need it, all to ensure many years of life to come. All of our works of art are hand wired, riveted, resined or glued-in for insurance. Typically, a single piece will be secured with two or more of those methods. (In general, KC doesn't like to rely on glue, but understands the occasional necessity.)

We are really passionate about handmade art- but we also understand some of the quirks inherent to such personal and glorious human creations!
We want you to love handmade too- so here are some common-sense policies to ensure the best experience for everyone:
