Context Gallery, jewels and contemporary objects

Olga Codina Trallero

Völgueta is jewellery made from recycled paper made with newspaper materials, hand-crafted and sundried. I try to promote recycling and the re-useof materials; this is the reason why I work with clean energies such as motor and solar thorough out the creative process of converting paper into jewellery. I also make the distribution using newspaper bags, tetrabriks and reusable boxes.
