“Ipomoea” is inspired by naturally occurring organic patterns. The primary elements are composed of a Thai Kozo paper pulled over steel screen, these forms are then detailed using ink and hand-stitched thread. The fabricated base is forged into stem-like sterling silver branches that are accented with 22k gold granules and gemstones. This piece was chosen as a finalist in the alternative materials category for the Saul Bell Design Awards in 2018.
Your handmade paper jewelry is delicate just like a flower. Here are some helpful tips on caring for your new piece!
*Please avoid direct contact with water! If your jewelry accidentally gets wet, dry carefully with a soft cloth or tissue and let dry completely before wearing again.
*Avoid long term exposure to humid environments (I.E Bathrooms)
*Apply all perfume, skin & hair products and wait until dry before putting on your jewelry. This is a good practice with all jewelry especially those with delicate gemstones like opals or pearls!
*Always put on holding metal over paper- this will help it stay in its ideal shape.
*When not wearing, I recommend storing your piece in its original box or separate from other items to avoid unintended damage.
Thank you for your purchase and most importantly enjoy your new jewelry! You look amazing!
