As the artist behind Paper Shaper by Julie, I find joy and inspiration in the centuries-old art form of paper quilling. With delicate paper strips, I sculpt and shape intricate designs, transforming humble materials into wearable works of art.
Each piece I create tells a story, capturing the essence of nature's beauty and the vibrant spirit of modern design. From the whimsical curves of floral motifs to the bold geometry of abstract patterns, my jewelry is a testament to the endless possibilities that unfold through the artistry of paper quilling.
I am drawn to the juxtaposition of fragility and strength that paper embodies. It is a renewable resource, a sustainable and humble medium that holds infinite potential. Through careful craftsmanship, I breathe life into each creation, infusing them with a sense of wonder and playfulness.
My mission is to create jewelry that not only makes a bold statement but also sparks conversations.
