We’ve featured her work before on our old blog but we feel her beautiful work is worth a revisit. Artisan Akiko Iwamoto learned textile dyed silk weaving at the Museum of Shimane Prefecture, Japan. Her colorful products are all hand made with dyed, split woven and sewn cotton cloth, which have been exhibited on several important venues.

These incredible paper jewelry are the creations of Barcelona-based artist Ana Hagopian. The accessories are made primarily from recycled paper, natural fibers and fabrics. Here’s what the artist says about her work:
“I play with paper, cutting and sticking to create volumes and shapes. My source of inspiration is nature and its infinite creations, its limitless colours, its surprising textures. paper is contradictory, provocative and humble because it is ephemeral. using it as a material has its roots in the philosophy of arte povera, which restores the value of the idea, intuition, thought and the individual. when i’m creating my works, i unconsciously seek primal contact, the constant wonder of childhood, the magical vision that transforms the prosaic and everyday into something new and marvellous. my process is intuitive, through my hands i come into contact with the material, which guides me towards the final form.”
