About

handcrafted paper jewelry

Hi! My name is Carmen Orasanu, I'm a bead maker, jewelry creator, amateur photographer and eco-thinker based in Cluj-Napoca, Transylvania, Romania
I started playing with paper in 2011 under the name of The Mistique Moth. After 7 years, the winds of change reached my studio and The Mistique Moth became Chiramó . Chiramó Jewelry was born from the desire to take the craft of The Mistique Moth to the next level. Turn it from a hobby to a full-time job, a business, paying more attention to all the details (the materials, the design, the logo, the package) as well as to online presence and attendance to specific fairs and events in Romania and abroad.
Chiramó jewelry is for the woman that goes beyond fashion and questions her true needs and desires making fully aware choices. Chiramó Jewelry is for the modern goddess who is humble enough to know she's not better than anyone, wise enough to know she's like nobody else and strong enough to affirm her unique nature in this world.

***
Chiramó jewelry shows respect and care for nature introducing a new material in the jewelry making field: PAPER!
All paper beads are crafted individually. I use the kind of paper that usually ends up in the trash bin: old magazines, posters, flyers, gift paper, damaged books, maps and musical sheets etc. After the bead is shaped, it gets from 5 to 8 layers of varnish, depending of the type of paper and the shape of the bead. I use only water-based, non-toxic varnish.

The process of getting one series of paper beads can last from a few days to a few weeks. In the end, the beads have a very neat and vivid look and are very resistant to water and long-term wearing.

Go green! Wear paper beads!

Frequently asked questions

Are the paper beads water resistant?

The paper beads are varnished several times, depending on the type of paper, using only water-based, nontoxic varnish. After this treatment they become very resistant, they keep their color and shape in time and in contact with water. Anyway, to enjoy the fresh look of your jewelry a longer time, I recommend you to keep it away from showers and sea water.
Don't worry, occasional contact with water will do no harm to your jewelry :)

Care instructions

No special treatment is required for the paper jewelry. Just take care of it not to come in contact with sand, dust, liquids and any other materials that can damage it.
I would recommend keeping the paper jewelry in its original packing or in a regular jewelry box. :)

Custom and personalized orders

Due to the fact that all my paper beads are one-of-a-kind and impossible to reproduce, I will not go into taking orders. Every piece of jewelry is unique and I'll be happy if you find something you like among my ready-made creations :)
