My name is Alicja and I currently live and work in Wiltshire, UK.
I guess it won’t be a surprise if I say I cannot imagine my life without paper. I’m actually addicted to it and BLURECO is a natural result of this great fascination.
I’ve been playing and experimenting with paper for as long as I can remember. I tried different paper techniques and finally I started creating my paper jewellery in 2011. Soon my works became very popular amongst wives and husband seeking 1st wedding anniversary gifts for their loved ones. I decided to launch a collection of unique jewellery dedicated to this occasion – jewellery that is made using personalised text, for example wedding vows.
It took me several years to develop my own paper techniques that today allow me to offer you jewellery of the highest possible quality. Every piece is hand made with great attention to detail, every paper bead is precisely coiled and every paper pulp element is formed, sanded or even made again from the beginning until it looks perfect.
In my studio I only use recycled paper and techniques that help me reduce waste to make my works as environmentally friendly as it is possible. I don’t add any chemicals or hardeners during the process; it’s just paper, water, and some glue. For finishing I use ecological varnish.
