PRODUCT: Paper Petals Necklace
SIZE: 22” long
DESIGNER: Ana Hagopian
Jewelry designer Ana Hagopian was born and educated in Argentina. Since 1980 she has lived and worked in Barcelona. She 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 colors, 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 marvelous. My process is intuitive, through my hands I come into contact with the material, which guides me towards the final form.”
Necklace is handmade in Hagopian’s Barcelona studio and features a button-hole clasp.
