Today I would like to introduce you to a jewelry shop with some of the most interesting jewelry designs I've seen in a long time! In fact, I've sat and looked at many of their pieces and wondered time and again... how does she -do- that??
PaperDemonJewelry on Etsy is the shop I'm talking about, and the artist behind the entire collection of beautiful jewelry pieces is Karen! Karen creates what she refers to as "organic origami", which is to say she creates one of a kind jewelry from Japanese paper and fabric!
Karen says that Paper Demon Jewelry is about thinking big and bold, and being everything you dream.
Her pieces of jewelry are made using Japanese washi and chiyogami papers and chirimen and shibori fabric to create innovative modern accessories with Japanese style that glows with color while still managing to have a natural warmth to it that distinguishes it as handmade with care.
All pieces are then treated with a proprietary (that means unique to her alone!) process to create a hard, shiny and waterproof yet still durable finish.
Karen also has a "Paper Earth" line of earth-friendly jewelry from recycled and salvaged materials that has the same color and style as her other pieces but has been created with zero carbon footprint!
PaperDemonJewelry is a gorgeous shop filled with beautiful and innovative jewelry that's bold in both style and color. Be sure to stop by and take a look! I'm especially fond of the pieces scattered within that look like stained glass but there are so many styles to choose from that you're sure to fall in love with your own choices as well!
