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.
