Artist Tia Kramer is an installation, sound, and adornment artist who has been integrating handmade paper into my her work for the last ten years. Her durable and water resistant handmade paper jewelry is safe for daily wear. Each sheet of distinctive paper is handmade using Philippine plant fibers and treated to protect from water and abrasion. The steadfast colors will not fade or bleed over time.
Kramer calls her adornments "performative sculptures for one’s ears, architecture for the body."
Using cold-form fabrication, she builds organic and geometric wire forms that pare down our complex environments to simple line modules. These non-soldered jewelry structures move
independent of one another, dancing on the ears, neck and wrists of the wearer. Like leaves on a tree limb, her adornments punctuate the wearer’s movement and expression.
Please contact the gallery for additional pieces by this artist. A smaller version of these earrings are also available.
