Let’s face it. How many contemporary jewellery creators get the chance to work with real gold? Hearing other artists’ testimonies who have had the luck to work with this precious metal, it must be amazing to experience how gold lives and breathes in your hands.
Don’t get me wrong. I am a real optimist and truly hope that one day I’ll be soldering and hammering away on little Au-objects myself, however, I have to come down to earth at least a couple of times a day and so I’ve chosen to ignore that shiny, delicious metal for now.
While doing some research, I came across some amazing artists who use paper to create the following breath-taking pieces. I do not want to sound too snobbish but for now I couldn’t care less about gold or any other precious metal for that matter.
