Japanese Chiyogami Paper Jewelry by Bashful Pineapple

Congratulations to Wendy @sevenwillowlane, giveaway winner!

Not only do I love to wear jewelry pieces that incorporate pretty paper, but I delight in helping online creatives spread the word about their unique handmade products. Bashful Pineapple might be a bit shy, I don't know, but one thing is for certain... the resin, paper, and silver jewelry found in Christina Gelinas's shop is no shrinking violet. I'd wear any of her designs in a heartbeat! Read on to learn how to win a piece of your choice.

Japanese Chiyogami Paper Necklace by Bashful Pineapple

Jewelry artist Christina lives in Toronto, Canada and has been creating necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, and cuff links for ten years. Six years ago she began working with resin. The distinctive silver-plated hardware Christina uses is sourced from Mexico where it is handmade at a community-minded manufacturing studio.

Rather than embedding just one piece of chiyogami paper in a setting, Christina hand-cuts tapered strips of the same or a complementary paper and angles them across the smooth layer to create a collage effect.

Christina enjoys making these one of a kind pieces and encases them in glossy resin as permanent, tiny works of art. She has been experimenting with metallic papers (actually a metallic adhesive film) and will be adding them to the site in the near future.
