Details

Working with recycled materials, Ghanaian artisan Akwele Suma makes a statement for ecological preservation. She chooses strips of poster and magazine paper in tones of blue, forming them into helix shapes that dangle from brass hooks.

The artist uses the paper at hand so paper colors will vary, making each design a unique example of handcrafted art. These beads receive a protective coat of clear nail polish.

"Sturdy earrings!"

These are delightful little bells. No ringer, but since they are on the ears, that is a plus! Very sturdy for paper.

I really like the colors used in these earrings -- they are study and subtle and go well with a number of different outfits. I love that they are handcrafted and lightweight, as well.
