This is a unique, handmade necklace – every single one I make is different. The tilted heart pendant is made by recycling the waste product of today’s news & transforming into a beautiful design that you will love to wear well into the future……Your first wedding anniversary is a PAPER anniversary – so this one of a kind off-centre heart pendant would make a perfect romantic gift for your loved one.
You’ll think that the necklace has been made from stone or ceramic from a distance – yet up close it is warm, light and full of colour from the original printing inks. My customers are always amazed to find out what it is made of!
This heart pendant has a green stripe detail around the edge, while different shades of grey mingle with highlights of blues, creams and pink on its front and back.
• I start by glueing sheets of newspaper together, just a few at a time, until I have a hard block of paper at the thickness I require.
• Once the block is bone dry, I attack it with my crafting knives and sanders! This shapes the piece and also reveals the colourful inks printed on the paper – which further makes each piece of jewellery unique.
• Next I varnish each piece to strengthen the material and highlight the colours.
• Finally I have insert a section of silver tubing front to back, through which I can pass the loop for its sterling silver chain.
Is it a gift? Your jewellery will be delivered beautifully wrapped in tissue and placed in a handmade fabric pouch.
