Well, I had not seen it before.....I have seen beads made from paper.....but that may just be because I am a seedbeadaholic 😁
So let me introduce you to Natalie Itinov who is fascinated by paper. As a student from the University of the Arts in London, she discovered paper as a delicate but resistant material. She could see the creative potential and was so inspired by it that is has become her main tool for creating ever since. And her efforts were rewarded when her final year paper sculpture was chosen as one of the best 12 pieces across all UAL colleges by the Creative Blog.
That is quite an achievement.....don't you agree 😃
As an artist, she had grown to believe that paper is a one of a kind material with the potential to be turned into anything. With that idea in mind, she started combining paper art with illustration, sculpture, metalwork, jewelry design and she is not afraid to experiment with materials.
That is what I think the strength of a creative maker.....not being afraid to experiment. Not all experiments turn into something good.....I can tell you that for sure. I found it in my case to have a large hunger for beading thread 😉
For Natalie, it has become a passion, a necessity, a therapy, and a dream. She is not limited to any type of project and takes on a variety of ideas and welcomes custom requests for any type of her hand-crafted artwork.
I bet you are curious enough now to want to see some of the things she creates. So here is what I selected for you to enjoy 😄
