The Just One More... jewelry collection is filled with wearable art. A continuation of her fascination with paper, which was first explored in her Folds line, Israeli designer Lital Mendel has decided to take it up a notch. As her title suggests, she plays with paper in such a way that she creates long sinuous necklaces that beg the statement, 'Just one more....'

Made up of hundreds of folded paper, the necklaces featured in the Just One More... collection often determine the snaking shape it takes on. Mendel writes, "It is hard to pinpoint the exact moment when instead of controlling the material, it begins to have a will of its own and to influence the design process. [...]The creation of this collection always involves dealing with the conflict between the material and its ‘will’ and my intentions the designer."
