Janna Syvanoja

Born 1960 in Helsinki, Finland, Janna Syvanoja creates her recycled paper jewellery pieces, with an organically slow process, by curving each slice of paper around the steelwire, piece by piece to evolve its shape by itself. Printed paper to her has an additional facet of the information it contains. Transformed into graphical patterns on the surface of her pieces, one can only see make out the words and letters that contained messages and expressions, very much what the artist wishes her jewellery is worn for.

The first I saw the picture, I didn't believe that it was a jewelry. She is a creative artist who has created unique jewelry. To look different, wearing this jewelry might be good option.

Janna Syvanoja is not only an artist. She has the capability to change the paper to jewelry. It's not only good for appearance but it's also good for environment. She shows her patience by making the jewelry slowly. I think she is more than an artist but also a human who concerns for her environment. We need more people like her in this world.
