This impressive collection of fiber art jewelry is the creation of a group of very talented Serbian family that includes the mother, Margita, and her three daughters, Mariajana, Hristina and Aleksandra. They employ a variety of traditional techniques of crocheting, knitting, hand weaving, embroidery, and felting to create these colorful and timeless accessories sold under the brand, rRradionica. The pieces are embellished with paper, vintage beads, bamboo beads and fabric covered buttons. Amazed at their success given the fact that they live in a country where supplies and services are often limited. You can view more of their designs on their blog and can also follow them on Facebook. Their jewelry can be purchased here on Etsy.

These fantastic hand made paper jewelry are the creations of UK-based mixed media artist, Liz Hamman. The paper she uses to create her jewelry comes from reclaimed books, maps and other assortments of paper materials. On an interview with the blog, All Things Paper, she says this about working with paper:
“I began working with paper when I was at college. I find it to be exceptionally versatile as a material and if a mistake is made, it’s not expensive to replace and, of course, paper is ecologically sound. Artist’s books – the book as an art form in its own right – interested me, especially sculptural ones. The paper jewellery came directly from this interest. I consider some of the necklaces I make to be sculptural Artist’s Books as they are complete books.”

Lauding the tenacity of UK-based jewelry designer, Niki Calvert, in creating these incredible cuffs and bracelet for her brand, Nix Jewelry. The artist hand weaves over 2000 pieces of tiny Japanese Miyuki glass beads to create just one bracelet. Really loving the geometric patterns and color combinations of her creations.
