Paper Jewelry by Hila Rawet Karni

Hila Rawet Karni makes significant use of her education in industrial design to create stunning jewelry.
 Folded Paper Necklace
The Kipul collection is composed of simple folded paper sheets. Hila skillfully transforms the origamic construction into something unique, surprising, and incredibly elegant.

The shading that results from the angular folding technique adds depth and interest.

She describes her work as an encounter between industrial design and jewelry design and considers it "...gutsy with a feminine edge."

You can see more of Hila's neckpieces and bracelets on her website. [edit: Hila is now working mostly with metals.] In addition to the Kipul collection, she has created a Kishut line, composed of flexible plastic and metal buttons or grommets, and the Kfitz collection that combines springs with textiles and leather.
