Jewels of paper

I am always happy to find young italian designers, today I would like to share the Papers Jewels of Sandra di Giacinto with you.
Sandra di Giacinto graduated in sculpture at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Roma.
She has always been fascinated by paper, by its countless working solutions, the different ways in which it can be treated, folded, and assembled into innumerable shapes.
Her collection of jewels is therefore minimal, light, durable and brightly colored. Sandra Di Giacinto's work is characterized by the constant research of new types of paper.
The latest collection 2006 exposed at Maison et Objet international exhibition in Paris drew a lot of attention. The collection has been selected by trendy boutiques all over the world and also by prestigious museum shops such as the Capitoline Museums of Roma, the Venice Biennale, La Pedrera Museum in Barcellona, Macro and Maxxi in Roma and the newly opened Carlo Bilotti Museum in the Villa Borghese Gardens of Rome.
