haute paper jewelry: francesca vitali
I'm awed by the intriguing jewelry of Francesca Vitali, an inventive designer from Rome, Italy-who lives now in Irvine California. Francesca crafts intricate paper jewelry by folding and weaving layers of colorful graphic paper. In her collection the different textures of paper and metal or leather are nicely integrated together. Check out a great interview of her with Roadside Scholar. More of her work can be found here.
