The final resolute Ethnical piece!

I finished my ethnical piece!

We had to make an interpretation of a chosen existing ethnic jewellery piece.
I chose the samburu people because I like there jewels and why the make them.

As you know I worked with crown caps. Because the are colorful,they have also a social meaning.
Here is the resolute.

Summer is almost here!!

Summer is almost here. I love the sumer because of the sun, the spirit, the light, the flowers…
I just LOVE it!

It is also the season flowers. That’s great!
Nature inspires me. Flowers come in every colour and every kind!
Their colours are so pure and fresh.

Flowers are everywhere. You see them in fashion, in decorations, in jewelry, in houses, …
They give that special touch!

But what I like the most are flower crowns.
Here are a few lovely examples:

Workshop by “Helena Lehtinen”

Last week we had a workshop at school by Helena Lehtinen. A Finnish jewellery designer.

The workshop took place during a whole week, with the bachelors and the masters students.
We had to make 4 jewellery pieces in 5 days. It has been so intensive.

We had to choose 2 objects. And than give them to a fellow student. That was surprising!
because suddenly we had to work with someone else’s objects. This means different materials and shapes.

We needed to accept this and take quick decisions.
It has been a great way to discover a new way of thinking and new ways to work.

The 2 objects that I got were a cork and a small part of a shower tap.
One object made out of a natural material and one of a man made material.

The multiple

Every year there is a project for the open day of our school. (Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp.)
It’s a project for the second and third year together.
They have to make a jewel to sell on the open day. “A multiple”

I find it a really nice and interesting project!
As you now I’m in my first year. That means I didn’t do this project.
But I bought one of the multiples.

I want to show you!
