Magazine celebrates the fragile aspect of a periodical. By turning the pages of PARIS, LA magazine into a unique bracelet, jewelry maker Ligia Dias confirms her interest in traditional and industrial materials, as well as her ability to combine luxury and natural attributes in one single object. Cut, gilded with 22-carat gold leaf, drilled, and held between two leather bands, Magazine becomes a formless, illegible book that can either be worn on the wrist or placed on display.
