Series 3.Eco Icon No.4

Parispetal necklace by Begoña Rentero

Spanish designer Begoña Rentero , originally from Granada grew up in a family that had a profound respect for nature and the environment. These early influences developed into a passion for organic forms, colour and movement inspired by nature.

Begoña later translated this passion into a  jewellery collection featuring a series of unique pieces. The colours and organic shapes winter flowers , flora and sea fauna have inspired her latest collection of hand made , exquisitely crafted jewellery.The pieces are made of special paper, fibres of silk cotton etc. that she prepares with a method she has developed to toughen them up for daily use, without compromising their delicate, organic aesthetic. Using only natural dyes her pieces both reflect and respect  the  environment and as she says “are so light you have to touch them to know that wearing them”. Definitely worthy of eco icon status…..
