Laurel Earrings

Sterling silver hoop, wrapped with petals made from brass and handmade paper, sealed with resin. Sterling silver earwires. 1.5 inches long.

VERSO jewelry is made from wire forms dipped into plant fibers suspended in water. The fibers cling to the wire and shrink as they dry. A translucent 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.
