Pafta

The original pieces was used as a belt buckle in the traditional woman wear in the region of Balkan Peninsula. Here you can see a beautiful pictures of pafta. Their dimension, form and decorations may vary. I was excited about the possibility to create a paper copy of this nice buckle  and to offer it as a contemporary finery, first – because it is really a lovely piece of art and second – it is an important part of the ancient history and culture of the nation.

I cut the desired forms from cardboard boxes and glue crepe paper to cover them.

I assembled the card board  layers and decorated with paper lines. Afterwards I varnished the pieces. You need just to fix a belt or a simple piece of cloth and wear your old – new fashion jewels.
