About Paper Jewelry
Paper Jewelry began with a desire to find a way to encourage people to recycle. Ina Crowe used magazines found in and by dumpsters to turn trash into treasure. Using recycled papers and homemade earth-friendly glues, Ina created sturdy, lightweight, and well designed art to wear in a 40-step process. She also uses handmade papers from around the world. Ear wires are sterling silver, 14K gold fill, and non-allergenic titanium, and niobium (no base metals). That which began as a recycling project has become a business.
