Objects of Desire

My inspiration ambition was to capture the essence of beauty & functionality, desirable objects.

Objects of desire is a series of one-off rings pendants & rings pretending to serve an alternative functional purpose. The jewellery explores the meaning of function in general, and specifically in relation to jewellery and tools. The jewellery is made to resemble tools and is visually perceived as such, but essentially, it is simply jewellery. The form expression has references to funnels, drinking bowls, cups, handles and bowls for collecting dew or liquids in connection with condensation etc.

Danish wood types are used in the design. The point is to demonstrate that jewellery can be much more than anonymous classics in gold with diamonds, and that the jewellery we choose to wear expresses who we are and how we want to be perceived.

In my work, I attempts to explore and define the meaning and function of jewellery.

I ask questions and challenges common perceptions of jewellery by examining its wide range of possible applications and various forms of inherent value. My jewellery can be illusory, carry memories and recollections and hold material value and multiple functions. In addition, the jewellery also serves as a means of interpersonal communication.
