Zuri Creations (by Chiara Zuliani and Manuela Rigon) is a start up born in 2011 with the ambitious inspiration of creating contemporary jewelry that bridges innovation and tradition.
At Zuri Creations, innovation is propelled by creativity, expressed via unique aesthetic designs and materials. The jewelry is primarily composed by recycled paper, a humble but strongly evocative medium, characterized by surfaces gifted with impurities and imperfections, capable of titillating the tactile and visive senses.
This creative work is supplemented by continuous research in the spirit of honoring the historical traditions of the Veneto region, which boasts a rich story of excellence in the world of jewelry making and accessories. Artisan expertise and industrial techniques are concerted to create jewelry born of a distinctive and decorated lineage.
Zuri Creations has been featured by a number of commercial enterprises and museum bookshops, including Guggenheim di Venezia and Paper Shop del Metropolitan di New York.
The process of crafting necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and broaches begins with hundreds of small disks made of paper of various diameters, thicknesses, and textures. These disks are “punched” on an industrial scale and subsequently fashionedtogether by hand, ensuring every item is unique. Everything ismade in Italy.
Zuri collections use color to invoke themes of the Veneto landscape, from the whites and beiges of marble utilized by Palladio for his splendid architecture (Palladio Collection), to the reds and maroons of Venetian homes and greens and light blues of the lagoon, eliciting the richness of the history and biodevirsity of the city (Venezia Collection).
In the latest collection, “Black and Gold,” the paper is accented with gilded metal disks to give the jewelry a chic and gritty look.
Racconto Necklace
A tale as long as a cord. That wraps its way around in small curves and tortuous meanders. This is the Racconto necklace by Creazioni Zuri, realized with
black pressed cardboard discs. A small aluminum disc completes and serves to bring together the two sides, making the piece brighter and more precious. A knotted necklace to wear around the neck just as one wears her own story, one's own personal tale.
Black and Gold Bracelet
In the "Black and Gold" collection bracelet's the cardboard is accented with gilded metal disks to give the jewelry a chic and gritty look.
"Black and Gold" Collection Necklace
This long necklace is made with black cardboard and gilded metal disks to give the jewelry a chic and gritty look.
Short Necklace Venezia Collection
From a rough and “poor” material like cardboard comes a necklace in strong, intense shades like brown, black and Venetian red. In fact, this piece takes inspiration from the typical houses in Venice, which is why the necklace is named after the city. It's a light spiral that wraps around the neck and lights the face up with color. Realized in
cardboard and recycled paper, it's a one-off piece as it is made by hand.
