Artist Statement

My work aims to achieve body adornment through folded and woven paper and in this particular piece I wanted the paper to create a frame that would celebrate the craftsmanship of the original buttons.

Artist bio:
Francesca Vitali strives to transform paper, a humble and ordinary material, into precious objects of unique and modern design. Paper affects everyday life continuously and in multiple forms: magazines, maps, shopping bags, etc. therefore she enjoys the idea that fragments of our lives will remain trapped in her paper jewelry.
Vitali earned her Ph.D. in organic chemistry at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. Besides her passion for science, she worked with paper since she was a child in Italy, but it was only when she moved in US that she decided to take a leap of faith and left her science carrier and began making jewelry full time. She has been showing her work ever since in the most prestigious shows all over the country.
