My friend Rose let me in on the secret of Celline paper jewelry by Selin Sarpkan. When I landed on her website I was transfixed by the collection and have to say that I've never seen anything quite like it. In fact, when I first tweeted about it, I remarked how much it looks like the fondant icing that is used to decorate cake.
Digging around a bit more, I read in this New York Times article that Selin was staffing the Artcitizens Shop during the 11th Annual Istanbul Biennial. I wish I had been able to meet her and see her pieces in person. How amazing they are.

And I wish I could show you more photos here, but you'll have to go see for yourself on her site. There you'll find things like earrings, rings, and brooches so well-crafted you'll want to run to Istanbul straight away to add them to your collection.
Truly inspired Selin. Well done.
