By translating the beauty of nature into wearable pieces of art, Ana Hagopian’s paper jewelry explores a rich universe of color, texture, and form. The Barcelona-based jewelry designer’s Stones Necklace uses its material to create a striking accessory consisting of hand-formed organic pebbles of paper in vibrant colors. In the necklace, three strands of pebbles lay around the wearer’s, gradiating from deep black or pure white at the back to bold red, blue, or black at the front. Each of the color options conveys a strong sense of personality and showcase the wearer’s appreciation for individual style. Of her work with paper, Hagopian says, “I play with paper, cutting and sticking to create volumes and shapes.” The sinuous, rounded form of each pebble in her Stones Necklace showcase her ability to create ethereal pieces from an unlikely material resulting in a decidedly contemporary sculptural jewelry made to be worn and cherished.
