Begona Rentero - Paper Jewelry

Thanks to a tip from reader (and fine writer) Maureen Doallas, I was taken to images of the work of Begona Rentero. Begona is a Spanish designer, originally from Granada, who makes exquisite paper jewelry inspired by nature. To my eyes, these vibrant Monet earrings fit in perfectly as a Fab Friday feature.

They look so real to me - like they were just plucked off a tropical plant!

Begona makes her own papers from silk, cotton, and other fibers, colors them with all natural dyes, and hardens each piece with a special method so it can be worn without a care in the world. Lightweight and comfortable, I'm imagining these earrings would be just right for so many summer occasions.

Begona's jewelry collection can be found at The Island Gallery in Bainbridge, Washington.
