Arco + Iris Design

Arco and Iris Design came to be in the summer of 2020, as owner and maker, Rosie Schinners began to craft handmade paper clay earrings from scratch.

Celebrating bold colour and pattern, the earrings are one-of-a-kind, lightweight, and made from recycled newsprint paper pulp. Each step is done by hand, from the making of the paper clay, to application of handmade decorative papers from around the world.

In addition to being the maker behind Arco and Iris, Rosie Schinners also creates colourful collage art from her home studio here on Salt Spring Island.

Working primarily with vintage print material, Schinners combines hand-cut collage with vibrant splashes of colour to bring new life to old images. She looks to explore and express fleeting moments of magic, alchemy, and the shifting nature of the internal landscape. Recent work has celebrated and reflected traditions of folk magic and brujeria, as a nod to the empowered ‘wise woman’ archetype.

Signed prints, cards, tote bags, and t-shirts are available through her art webshop.
