AO3 Necklace

AO3 is a macro necklace made with paper from design magazines, Kodak photographic paper and Favini Remake midnight, a special recycled paper from the discarded residue of the leather manufacturing process that represents a revolutionary example of ‘upcycling’. The residues, which are visible on the surface, give the paper its distinctive look and its amazing soft and velvety feel. Three different surfaces create volumes of beauty and lightness. It’s inspired by African masai necklaces. The necklace is finished with lava stones and customizable length silk satin ribbon. The necklace is very light despite its large size.


Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, slight alterations may occur due to the folding of the papers, in the final item.

This piece is not waterproof, but the paper is very resistant for its intrinsic qualities and indeed it is usually used in luxury packaging. I used a water-based glue to preserve the line created with paper from magazines. The rest of the paper is not treated in order not to lose the particularity of its surfaces. Furthermore, this type of weaving makes paper even stronger. However, take care of your jewelry made entirely by hand: do not expose it to excessive heat sources and do not immerse it in liquids. Therefore no shower, sea or pool with it, but a few drops of rain can withstand very well, otherwise with the umbrella everything is solved! This item is surprisingly strong, however, like all jewellery, it should be treated with care. Do not store with other heavy objects pressing against and pay attention also to perfumes and make-up.
