COUP de COEUR !   Michaela BINDER : une femme de poi...l ! dans Allemagne (DE) ringu_rosenstamm
bagues argent et feutre

In 1997 Michaela Binder presented a variable jewelry system with a collection crafted from silver and exchangeable colored felt elements. While gemstones provide the color in other designer’s creations, these pieces are lit up by brightly colored felt: soft and supple, saucy and easily exchangeable. In another collection of hers, fluffy mink on rings or silver bangles makes for an unusual visual and haptic experience. All her works are dominated by minimalist shapes such as squares, rectangles and circles made of brushed silver, recently also complemented by floral elements. Michaela Binder, who also creates impressive metal vessels, loves to overcome traditional notions associated with jewelry. Samples of her oeuvre can be admired in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, among others. (ArtAurea)

FELT FELT FELT… jewelry – upcoming book ’500 Felt Objects’

« Trumpet sound ! Some time ago, the call for entries went out for 500 Felt Objects, a book slated for fall 2011 release*. After seeing Fashioning Felt, the terrific show she curated, I enlisted Susan Brown of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum to serve as the juror for this book. We’ve been reviewing the images to include in the book, and I’ve come across some really exciting jewelry made with this extraordinary material!
Now, please don’t think the decisions have been made for the book–we’ve still got a loooong way to go before selections are finalized. Just wanted to share the fascinating things some talented artists from around the globe are making. » (Larkcrafts)
