Hand Painted Coral Bicycle Chainring Necklace is part of our one-of-a-kind collection!
These pieces may look like old, weathered metal with a fine, colorful patina…but it’s not metal. It’s PAPER. Yes, you read correctly…PAPER! I use a unique, multi-step process which yields one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces that look more like metal than paper.
You may be asking, “But how durable is it? Will I get more than just a handful of wears?” YES! I coat each piece with a protective glaze that makes it incredibly resilient. No, you can’t swim, shower, or take a hot yoga class in it, but a little moisture from getting caught in light rain or a little bit of sweat won’t hurt it.
Each piece starts as a humble piece of cardstock paper; usually no larger than about 4″ x 6″. I emboss each sheet and then paint them using a highly-blendable metallic paint. I cut out the small shapes I want to use for my jewelry and then I carefully adhere each piece onto 2mm high-density craft foam for stability. The final step is coating each piece with a protective glaze before I begin to assemble it into its final jewelry form.
