Space Jewellery

Anatomical test model of in-ear-rings, inspired by Carrie Fisher in Star Wars. It’s kind of hard to find the perfect fit, but when they do fit, you don’t feel them. Now it’s time for the second stage: to own them, still pending… Material brass (thank you, Jessie) My space jewel faves Pinterest

Materializing rubber

As a former petrolhead i quite liked this exit exam work at the (furthermore disappointing) graduation show at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. The artist: “In ‘Materialisation’ I am making visible the transformation of rubber from the rubber tree (hevea) seed to the tyre. Each piece has an educative power and is a statement on the rubber industry. Wearability helps to bring the body closer to what might otherwise seem like cold information and criticality.” Jewellery Caroline Bach

Sink or Swim

Casanova:“I put the shell to her [Emilia’s] mouth, I told her to suck in the liquid and keep the oyster between her lips. She performed the feat to the letter after laughing heartily, and I took the oyster by pressing my lips to hers with the greatest decency. She was delighted by the delicacy with which I took the oyster from her lips… Earrings with hand-cut oyster shell. Material 18ct gold, silver, oysters hell Price €190

Big Mamas

Dutch women, even the upper class, do hardly wear any jewellery. And if they do they often buy the cheaper brass and silver stuff. I design and make complex pieces of jewellery, mostly made of 18ct gold. Now I’m on a quest for cheaper jewellery (€100 – €200) – especially for the new collection I was asked to create for a museum shop. I’ve used recycled 14ct gold with huge baroque pearls for these ‘Big Mamas’. Price € 190 _ SOLD

Light of Colour – Edgar Fernhout

Worth visiting…serene expo with abstract impressions of nature, painted by the son of the famous Charley Toorop who was fascinated by the colour of Dutch light at his hometown Bergen. After he made the jump from figurative to abstract art, he finally knew how to really become the sea, or springtime, which – according to the artist – paints itself. Art Edgar Fernhout Exhibition ‘Light of Colour’, Kranenburgh Museum, Bergen

My Family

Some people believe carnelians invoke laughter & warmth, they’ll open the heart to abundant joy, which is what really makes one happy (instead of success). Joy = family & friends & sunshine. Necklace ‘My family’ Material oystershell, silver, carnelians

‘Why then the world’s mine oyster Which I with sword will open’ – William Shakespeare.

Goodbye my love – Cyn

One of my best friends just passed away. We met at 12. Always laughed our hearts out, even the last time we met, when I did not know it was. She LOVED Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band and when I heart Cherchez La Femme at her funeral I saw her dancing the night away at our fave disco ‘Cas‘. I’ll always love U , Cynthia Schulz.
