I am a young artist who loves to play around with different materials and shape them into original, modern jewels. I have always nurtured this passion and I have sold my creations to local shops when I was still living at home...oh yes, probably I should mention that I'm Italian and I have recently moved in the States...but this is a long story, never mind!!
Although I craft different kinds of materials, I really love to include in all my jewels a 'paper touch'. Let me spend a few words about paper...I was hooked from the very first moment I discovered paper beads making. Starting with simple paper beads, I began later to develop new geometries, combine them with other materials and explore new ways to decorate and pattern the paper. I find paper beads very versatile and I adore the idea to be able to customize each of them in the way I wish!
Paper is such a great material to work with, and
I hope you enjoy my enthusiasm for jewelry, design and crafting!
I use a moisture-resistant sealant to protect beads from rain and skin moisture and avoid paper from tearing. Beads are not water-proof, though! Please, remove them before swimming, doing the dishes or having a shower!
EVERY ITEM IS WRAPPED WITH ITS OWN VERY SPECIAL BAG....READY FOR GIFT GIVING!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org). I would love to hear any requests, comments, suggestions, etc.
I GLADLY TAKE CUSTOM ORDERS...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!
