About Lokta Paper Art

Handmade Paper Jewelry


Vasiliki Merianou

Greek creator of fine art jewellery. Founder of the Lokta Art brand, she lives and works in Switzerland. From her studio in Lugano she creates her imaginative jewellery and travels to exhibitions and fashion shows in Switzerland, Greece, Italy, Romania, Cyprus etc. Inspired by strong everyday life stimuli and images, by nature, architectural forms and shapes, her jewellery artistically refers to the Arte Povera and aesthetically to her Greek origins. She uses various heterogeneous materials that she turns into unique pieces of jewellery, small handmade pieces of art which intent to highlight the particular style of the woman wearing it. Paper, wood, holi powders, resin, sand and gold leaf sheets serve her passion for creativity. She always remembers herself creating jewellery from materials which fire the imagination. She has matured her craftsmanship by attending Design and Painting courses at the Ergo Lab atelier in Lugano, Switzerland, and also Handmade Paper Creation at the Museum Carta Mela in Genoa, Italy. She collaborates with foreign fashion designers and in 2019 she was selected together with other 140 contemporary jewellery designers from all over the world to make part an exhibition at the Palazzo Bovara in Milan.

Creation starts with only a piece of paper in my hands. Each jewellery takes time to produce it from two to three days up to a week, after it passes from various stages to its final form. Each jewel is unique thanks to the uniqueness of the paper.

Creation does not end here … (The secret life of a jewellery) the secret life of the Jewellery is very interesting when a favourite old book turns into a jewellery that can be worn and preserved in time with a different value, (project from recycled magazines) is based on recycling magazines their use by a woman is usually to read and then placed in the wastebasket, have a second chance to turn them into a gorgeous jewellery (Art Deco) to combine and process all of the above into paper items for creating pieces of decoration…
