PAPER fringe

This season I have been inspired by the fringe and the way it falls lightly.

I couldn't resist on working on 2 versions.
With the short version I play with 2 colors : while this model settles on the bust, the longer model moves and catches light.

I am using wrapping paper  with a glossy finish for the beads, thin enough to roll it into narrow sticks and mounted on an antique brass chain. Finally, 3 small metallic pearls ( gold finish) bring weight and contrast with the texture of the paper.

paper in december

I am evolving with corrugated paper. 
I have worked with this thinner corrugated paper that allows more subtle waves, 
a more complex final shape.
Painted and varnished in black on this picture, it is mounted on a very thin metallic chain 
(gunmetal finish), doubled for a softer transition with the neck.
This model is for the bust.

With a stronger kind of corrugated paper also painted and varnished, 
this model is about elementary shapes. tensed, closed, empty and always in movement.
It is a double necklace, sautoir style ( long). The kind you just throw on you as you would throw a scarf 
to animate your outfit.

I love those big round beads so I found another way to wear them. 
How interesting is this line of 3 beads gives weight to the paper. For the winter, on top of your sweater, even with a scarf, the sautoir style which is a long necklace always shows  and with its rigorous lines settle your silhouette.

 I updated the little round beads with bright colors and textured cardboard.
 ....ooooo..... interlaced on a short black cord, it brings a touch of color. it's for everyday.
