silina pantelidou: paper and metal jewelry

Silina Pantelidou begins each collection of jewelry by making sketches, allowing the forms that “wander around” her mind the space and time needed for them to come to life.

Pantelidou studied graphic design and bookbinding, eventually learning to work with metal, which sent her off in a different direction, opening a new path: jewelry that combines paper and metal.

She explains, “from now on I could blend paper and metal in order to tell my stories in the form of small, precious objects.”

My personal favorites are the Voice and Asana collections pictured here.

“My main materials are metal and paper. Metal is a tough “companion”. At times I transform it until it follows my sketch, or at other times I let it show me the way through its own pathways. For the purpose of antithesis but also for balance I use paper, a material which feels as if it holds me by the hand. The paper fibers create an environment where I can play around with the colors of nature and the canvas on which I can narrate my stories.”

li-chu wu’s paper jewels

Paper has held my fascination as an art medium for most of my life. I still feel a child-like excitement when I find paper art that expresses beautiful gestures or capture a small detail of nature.

Li-Chu Wu’s paper jewelry is a welcome addition to the growing list of paper art I have featured on DAM.

Wu, who holds a Masters in Jewellery, Silversmithing and Related Products from Birmingham City University, creates movement by manipulating multiple layers of paper.

“The pieces function both as wearable pieces of body adornment and as sculptural objects off the body. The soft and subdued tones of colour that I choose give a quiet, calm and contemplative quality to the pieces.” Li-Chu Wu

emma yeo: laser cut wood veneers

26 year old Emma Yeo’s silk, wood and suedette creations range from neckpieces and hats to sculpture.

The artist uses interlocking pieces of wood veneer that have been laser cut and inscribed. Geometric pattern meets female sensibilities.

In June 2010 she won the UK’s top millinery competition – quite a feat for someone who has only been making hats for two years.
