FLORA CURIOSA

- For me the forest is a mysterious place filled with both darkness and John Bauer magic - inhabited by plants and creatures living together in symbiosis or the brutal reality of nature. I have a strong fascination for the world of flora much like my fascination for the deep sea. It is a realm beyond my understanding, and I both fear it as yearn for it. My pieces of jewellery attempt to capture my ambiguous feelings into wearable pieces in shape of leafy growth and creepy little bugs.

As starting point I use thin steel or brass sheets that I saw in fine formations to be hammered and bent for dimension and body. These folded shapes serve as the foundation for my pieces, which I cover with hundreds of paper parts as well as dried seed cases to evoke a sense of growth and new imaginary qualities. By painting them in many layers, I aim to bring an organic depth and a touch of melancholy and magic into the pieces. (Hanna Liljenberg)
