I work with paper and sterling silver to create jewelry that is light in weight and full of color.
Oxidized sterling silver wires are formed into petal or leaf shapes and soldered closed. That petal or leaf shape is flattened and then sandwiched between layers of paper and saturated with booking binding glue. Next it is sprayed with an acrylic with UV protection to seal. When dry the petal is trimmed and bent to shape. The wires give body and the paper becomes stiff and translucent. It is intended to look fragile but be resilient. The parts are assembled and move gently.
