This Framboise turquoise bracelet, made of vintage bakelite bead and silver ball chain, is very light to wear. The silver chain has a tender structure. Allow yourself or your loved ones a splash of colour for every day! I have used the turquoise lacquer on bakelite (plastic) re-used beads from vintage jewellery. Bakelite jewellery was most popular between 1920 to 1940 during the Art Deco period. Also some famous companies, like Chanel and Van Cleef and Arpel, worked with this material and created bakelite jewellery. Where does my inspiration come from? And where does it end? Where it has no limits and no rules, it is inexhaustible. With myriads of sources, in all shapes and colors, it develops itself. The inspiration’s floating in weightless state, it never stands still. By movements of the water pulled back and forth – a solid bottom does not exist. Unknown waters catch our senses with mystic turquoise.
Framboise turquoise bracelet was made in 2018 and is a one of a kind piece. It belong to the Unknown Waters collection, I’ve begun to create in 2013. It is about imagination, undiscovered worlds, fantasy, colours and nature. How far is it from the depths of the unknown oceans until you reach the depth of imagination, an unknown place where everything is possible? And in countless combinations? We move slowly, swim at the bottom of our thoughts and discover again and again what we have not even dreamed of. . . You ask yourself where this fantastic variety of impossible forms and mystical colors comes from? What inspires the nature in her creations? I use dried, lightweight driftwood to create my jewellery pieces, mostly brooches, but also rings and necklaces. Dyed and lacquered with few layers of varnish, it becomes stable and wearable.
