EVERY DAY – each day like the next, but not quite….
Humour, warmth and austerity – three words I associate with my jewellery.
I experience colour and shape in almost everything in my surroundings. There is inspiration to be found in everything – in a meeting, a shape, a feeling, a reflection, a movement, in a text and so on… Nothing is too small and insignificant so as not to be taken seriously - everything has a meaning at any given time or place.
I make unique, wearable sculptural pieces of jewellery that are free-standing sculptures when they are not worn on the body.
The size of jewellery and the fact that it is worn on the body interests me and that is why I have chosen to work with jewellery as an art form.
I choose my materials from what I find around me, at home, on a walk or at a flea market… ideas and issues decide my choice of material.
What interests me is to give the materials new energy, to put materials and objects into a new context; jewellery, based on today’s consumer society.
I want the original materials to shine through, first I want the viewer to see and experience the piece of jewellery, but then at a second glance I hope the viewer recognizes the materials/ objects I have used, life is revealed if you take the time, time past and present emerge into each other and create a new story…..
