I've been very inspired lately by unexpected combinations, so you can imagine my delight when I came across this one! Gésine Hackenberg fashions this amazing jewellery from china plates. As you can see, the plate itself is part of the artwork... Actually, I'm not sure if they are sold this way, but now that I've seen them together - the jewellery and its origins - I wouldn't want them separated, would you?! Hackenberg's artist statement has a beautiful inclusion about the precious objects in our lives that may not necessarily be valuable and yet we value them for a myriad of reasons. This is how she conceived the idea of making jewellery (what we see as precious) made out of things of personal significance. Visit Gésine Hackenberg's website to see more of her work. I found her via Blanket.
