My object of the month: Louise Hibbert and her beautiful bug inspired pendants.
The bodies are made from sycamore – turned and carved or pyrographed before being airbrushed with acrylic inks. The dotted ones are textured with acrylic resin. The copper is often textured with a subtle hammered pattern and heat treated to achieve the rich dappled colours. Some also have reclaimed 18ct gold eyes.
Nature, the biggest inspiration of all time. Artists, designers and creators have always been guided from mother earth.
This time I’m in Berlin, Germany with a jewelry designer who takes apart natural things as fruit wood sticks and deer horns and reconstruct them to a complete new form into a jewelry. Silke Spitzer creates exciting new design reference to nature.
