The repeated shape of a simple paper module develops slowly into a crystalline structure that covers the body to create a second skin. Evocative of ancient icons, it seeks to represent the fascinating properties of paper and its potential to change and evolve from simplicity to complexity. A necklace that grows till it becomes headgear, earrings that fuse with the ornament. The 3D texture evokes the structure of thorny buds. This jewel was exhibited at the Milan Triennale and published in the Electa catalog: Paper Jewellery | Gioielli di carta. (with Elena Salmistraro)
