Paper seeds necklaces
Any one of Ana's fabulous pieces would warm up the simplest black dress this winter!
When I first began blogging, images of her jewelry were swirling around art sites in such abundance I held off on a feature post. But when I noticed recently that Ana's website had been updated with gorgeous new work, it was definitely time to share.
She credits nature as the inspiration for her colorful designs and describes the variety as the "fruit of the collected experience of my travels."
Ana studied Fine Arts and Interior Design at the University of Buenos Aires in the early 80s, after which she moved to Spain and began traveling to many locations in Asia and South America. It was in the mid-90s that she became fascinated with constructing contemporary paper jewelry.
I love the variety of papers that Ana uses... some appear practically gauze-like, while others are heavier.
