My most recent body of work is inspired by wonderfully decorative
chiyogami papers. These hand silk screened papers, which often
display organic or geometric elements, can be incredibly ornate.
Based on bright kimono textiles, these designs were developed in
the Edo period as woodlbock prints and used to enliven farmhouse
interiors. I extract small scenes from these papers, set them in
sterling silver, and then protect them under a thin waterproof layer
of resin.
Have fun browsing the collection of necklaces, earrings, bracelets,
and rings. All styles are available in any of the thirty-six papers shown.
Choose a style, choose a paper, and we'll make it.
