EXPO ‘Cut, Braid, Knit, Fold’ – Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery, Saltaire (UK) – 23 Mai-1er Juill. 2011

showcase Cut, Braid, Knit, Fold which puts a focus on traditional craft techniques used to create unusual contemporary jewellery. The showcase runs until 1st July 2011.

EXPO  fold, braid, knit, cut

Featuring:
Anthony Roussel – Cut,
Anke Hennig - Braid,
Blanka Sperkova - Knit and
Rachel Darbourne - Fold.

Ambitious creativity meets traditional techniques in this fashion forward showcase of wearable and affordable work by four contemporary jewellers.
 BRAID
Inspired by 19th Century braiding techniques, Anke Hennig works in fine threads of coloured nylon and silk to create curvaceous three-dimensional forms from wound flat braids.
CUT
Crisp, precise rings that create undulating fan-like shapes on the hand.
It is the British coastline that inspires Anthony Roussel’s laser cut birch wood jewellery.
 FOLD
Looking like extravagant Elizabethan ruffled cuffs, Rachel Darbourne’s folded bracelets and necklaces are a feat of recycling: carefully folded from polythene bags, they are colourful and fun to wear.
KNIT
The prize for eccentric making technique goes to Blanka Sperkova, who finger-knits wire into both free sculptures and jewellery, creating delicate, witty, multi-dimensional pieces.

Jenny Llewellyn (UK) silicone jewelry -  stand C03
« I take inspiration from the luminous colours, shapes and movement of creatures from the deep sea to create vibrant, playful pieces that move with the wearer and glow in the dark.

Lee Myungjoo 'Roll'Lee Myungjoo (Korea) -  stand K07

« ‘Roll’ and ‘Bend’ are themes and techniques that I use on my simple formed jewellery pieces. To give vitality I use painting effect on silver with Keumboo (Korean overlay technique) and gold leaf. I want my jewellery to be a small sculpture on your body. »

Bijoux textiles de Anke HENNIG – éléments organiques, faune indécise…

Anke Hennig combines with her jewellery the colours of winter and icy glitter with her delicate transparency of textile weave, called Monofil. The secret of her invention she keeps all to herself. The rosettes which are made into brooches and earrings are light and precious : a flexible development of the chains, partly because of the secrecy of their technique and at the same time their beauty.

« The underlying idea of my work is a new design principle.  I am limited to clear forms and the principle of sequences. Simple, flat braids are wound aroundand over themselves and form a spiral and provide an unusual aesthetic in the third dimension. Pieces of jewellery are produced with an appearance and a surface, which hardly allows one to imagine its origin. The lightness and mouldability of the materials are particularly important to me. My preference for filigrees influence the original shape of my jewellery. »(Anke Hennig)

*Kathryn Partington produces one-off wearable items of jewellery by utilising her background training within the discipline of tableware ceramics & printed  textiles. She does not leave us with the association of the hoar frost on our skin. She rather conserve it in silver, silk and porcelain with fine patterns. These are applied in various printing and embossing techniques. some of them seems total magic ; it glimmers ever so softly, shimmers delicately and comes across changing just like a changing picture does.

*Anke Hennig combines with her jewellery the colours of winter and icy glitter with her delicate transparency of textile weave, called Monofil. The secret of her invention she keeps all to herself. The rosettes which are made into brooches and earrings are light and precious : a flexible development of the chains, partly because of the secrecy of their technique and at the same time their beauty.

*Michaela Kirchner experiments with tiniest structures, which line up around the neck of the person carrying them as if they were silver-coloured floating ice. Their amorpheus shapes are, melted into tiny glitter sructures which catch the light from all sides and throw back the light, shimmering and prescious.
