Paper Jewelry

Paper has been my passion since I was a little girl at that time I thought I had 'invented' the paper beads (rolled up paper triangles)...imagine my disappointment when I discover that the art of paper beads was already renowned during the Victorian era!! Anyway this didn't stop me from filling up my parents house with paper triangles everywhere until one day my sister come up to me and gave me some quilling paper (straight strips of paper) telling me: 'Please can you do something new with paper, I cannot take these paper beads any longer!'
After some time and numerous attempts on new shapes and directions I found that weaving those strips of paper was the way to go. From that day on I started weaving and I have yet to stop!!
I discover that there are so many shapes that can be achieved by repeating over and over the same movement, and that design possibilities are virtually unlimited. This is at the same time fun and challenging.

...this pretty much sums up very briefly the beginning of my history with paper.

Additional policies and FAQs

Each piece is coated by a moisture-resistant sealant to protect it from rain and skin moisture and to avoid paper from tearing. None of my pieces are water-proof though.

If a piece happen to get soaking wet, let it dry for few days lying flat and it should return to its original status.

Please, remove them before swimming, doing the dishes or having a shower!



Please note that most of my pieces made with recycled paper the paper patterns can slightly vary from the listed photos.

When a listing is not for a specific color you need to contact me within 48hr to choose a color scheme otherwise I'll pick one for you



Every item is shipped in a nice package, that is ready for gift giving!



I gladly take them...just tell me your favorite color and/or your character & style and I'll be more than happy to translate them into a unique piece of art!
