Handmade paper and copper pendant, hand dyed, on an 18" sterling silver chain with a handmade sterling silver clasp.
Colors pictured: brass patina, and indigo.
VERSO jewelry is made from wire forms dipped into abaca paper fibers suspended in water. The fibers cling to the wire and shrink as they dry. A tight paper skin is built up on the form over successive dips.
The paper-skinned forms are then sealed to make them water resistant and durable.
Each piece of paper jewelry is handmade and therefore unique. Variations will occur from piece to piece.
