the possibility of the usage of paper through the traditional book binding technique “sampokin”,  which has been used to preserve bibles from deterioration since long ago.100 sheets of 0.1mm thick paper are stacked together with gold foil on the edges, witch create a charm that doesn't seem like paper.Although given the appearance of heavy metal jewelry, it actually only weighs 5g, ikue is surprisingly light when worn.
