FLORA COLLECTION

Leia Beila and paper cut artist Lauren Iida have integrated their creative efforts to curate the one-of-a-kind pieces in the Flora Collection.  Each design is uniquely sketched, then carefully hand cut and electroformed, which transforms the artwork into wearable art with a bold statement. This unique process begins with a collaborative design phase for each piece to be executed thoughtfully and uniquely between the two artists. Next, paper designs are intricately cut by hand and carefully prepped for a very thick coating of copper to grow over the paper. This final stage encases and preserves the paper design inside forever. Using specific chemistry and an acid bath, combined with an artistic eye, copper is unified with the paper in a beautiful finish. 
Very limited numbers of these designs have been made and only a few remain.
