Intersections

“This body of work consists of rings, earrings, pendants, and brooches.
I use the circle as a basic component and put together three-dimensional forms with six different circle sizes.

These forms are built symmetrically, starting from a center and adding and arranging the components in different angles to form clusters and layers. The resulting shape is a rigid meshwork, where the cube can be recognized as the main organizing form.

Building the forms was like a game of exploring variations.
I used the same number of components to put together forms with different characteristics: pattern, density and size. The pieces are first built up in wax and then cast in one piece in silver and the pearls have been added at the end.
