The jewels of paper (recycled): are the last frontier of sustainability ♦ ︎
It is very easy that none of the passionate readers of gioiellis.com will never buy a jewel made with paper. Which, then, is not a jewel but, if anything, an accessory, a decoration, a game. But if, by hypothesis, you like to use scissors and imagination to create something new, here is the book, indeed, an editorial project that’s right for you. It is called Carta Preziosa, the design of the paper jewel, and is curated by Bianca Cappello in collaboration with Comieco – National Consortium for the Recovery and Recycling of Cellulose-based Packaging, and by Skira Editore, Cartiera Paudice and Cartotecnica Print Finishing.
The book contains 21 «jewels», including necklaces, bracelets, rings and tiaras, made of colored cardboard, with 100% recycled material and colored with vegetable tints. These paper bijoux are to be built, worn and given away. The authors are 21 designers and contemporary artists who for years have made paper their main work tool. The presentation of the book-casket is scheduled for Monday, March 26, 2018 at 11.00, Sala Napoleonica of the Academy of Brera, in Milan.
