I am over the moon about the work of Ana Hagopian at that moment, found via a tweet by @amalucky. I do love the power of social media.
Ana Hagopian is a jeweler originally trained in Buenos Aires, now working in Spain. Her materials of choice are recycled paper and textiles. Her style is self described as giving the illusion of the natural world.
I think they are certainly that and more. The jewelry shown on her website clearly does depict nature, such as the amaryllis necklace below, but her choice of colors, textures and methods imbues her pieces with a cheerful celebratory feeling. Some pieces remind me of garlands and streamers of a carnival, a summer day in a meadow, Mexican paper flowers, or merely a sweet garden party. Other pieces are more serious in style, like her necklaces of stands of various colored metallic disks, but these too have a richness and luxury that would make any wearer feel pampered happy.
