Sometimes blog posts just seem to write themselves... I knew this one would be like that the moment I laid eyes on the lighthearted paper - yes, paper! - necklaces and earrings from Laura des villes Laura des champs in Paris.
Created by young designers in love, Laura and Médéric, some of the pieces feature folded paper, and all are crafted by hand from laser-cut shapes and sterling silver.
The whimsical selection...carousels, boats, and prince and princess crowns just to name a few, conjure up a sense of childhood nostalgia.
The pendants and earrings may look delicate, but because the recycled paper is coated with an environmentally friendly and shatterproof resin that Laura and Médéric worked hard to develop, they are durable and waterproof.
