Deepa Sekar: Hand-made (paper) jewellery

When people look at Deepa Sekar’s creations they invariably ask the same question: “Is it really paper?” Deepa makes paper jewellery under the name `10 Fingers’. The range is said to be made of woodfree recycled paper.

“It is such a humble material, but I wanted to show what a lot can be done with a little imagination,” says Deepa. “As a consumer product, the jewellery is sustainable, handmade and eco-friendly.”

Deepa takes three days to make a pair. “Bead, metal work and paper structuring takes a lot of time.” She also experiments with vegetable dye in kalamkari.

The jewellery is priced between Rs. 50 and Rs. 250. Visit http://www.paperjewellery.
