…. Ou ce qu’il reste d’une vie trépidante de « fashion addict » ….. nous sommes « étiquetées » !!
Kajsa Lindberg « Everyday Clips » brooches 2008 Laminate, concrete 10 x 8 x 1 cm (Velvet da Vinci)
« Every day I’ve been working on the routines and rituals of everyday life. The system of repeats and symbols that we inhabit and need. I’m always collecting things I come into contact with – things that say something to me.
The project is reminiscent of archaeology. It’s a sort of contemporary archaeology. Instead of exploring a different age I try through my findings to find out what’s happening here and now. Just as notes form a pattern and a history for things. That’s what I use as my basis when I make my jewellery.
I watch the ground.
I have used the bike that is drawn on the streets. On my way again and again.
In the necklace I have used pieces of iron connected with rubber rings to form a chain. It is reminiscent of a bike chain and the bike is travelling around the body on its own chain.
With the same materials I have made broader and bigger necklaces. Protection.
Street stones. Letters. Signs.
If you look. Small codes everywhere.

Yunju Lee‘s precious stains… “The worthless and unpleasant stain that we find in our daily life can be transformed into the most valuable and fascinating jewellery. Jewellery is not always extraordinary, but it is an object tht we can learn in our daily life”
Yunju Lee is a recent graduate from the jewelery program at london’s central st. martins. her works takes a decidedly opposite perspective to the idea of beauty in jewelery. instead of diamonds and gems, lee crafts brooches that look like stains from ketchup or a woman’s lips. other pieces include a nose ring that has a milk moustache hanging below and ring with a household iron pattern. while the subject in her work is commonplace and unconventional, she executes them in more traditional silver, gold and enamel.

Small every day life mishaps are her starting point of creation. Her exquisite jewellery and the collection, which was about “worthless and unpleasant stains, which we find in our everyday lives”, were transformed into precious jewellery. A set of ketchup dribbles stain to be worn on your tie, black enameled sterling silver ink stains to pin on your shirt or a cheeky lipstick trace set on a solid gold collar. More girlie lips and charming milk mustache (nose ring) can be found at the collection. Her funky and delightful collection is exclusively available only in Kabiri.co.uk, London.
