FROM SURVIVAL TO REVIVAL ’19

We all often keep some jewellery we don’t wear anymore because we have a feeling or memory attached to it. It ends up in a box deeply hidden in a cabinet or drawer. More and more jewellery just lies there with no particular reason or potential to be worn in the near future.

The industry keeps on producing and we keep on buying every season. But what happens with all this jewellery we don’t wear anymore? I want to tackle this problem in my work. I’m a collector as well of these hidden away treasures and I see value and possibilities in them. The unexpected unique combinations are the starting point of my process and stand central in my way of working.

 With the forgotten jewellery I create new, transformed and wearable pieces. Rediscovering the jewellery through making new combinations and the way I assemble them together I create new unique pieces ready to wear again. My intuitive way of combining and assembling make my pieces appealing and if you look well there is a touch of wittiness. In my way of working I merge humor, creativity and metalwork skills. The collection, ‘From survival to revival’, breathes new life into the old, hidden pieces.
