L’Oriol em va passar fa unes dies l’enllaç d’aquesta artista holandesa i vaig quedar al·lucinada de la bellesa d’aquestes peces. Unes joies visuals amb papallones, libél·lules i altres insectes trobats. Preciós!

Oriol sent me the link of this Dutch artist and I was stunned with the beauty of these pieces. Visual jewels with butterflies, dragonflies and other insects she have found. Beautiful!

“A damaged butterfly, a broken twig, a bumblebee, some strangely grown weeds: I find all these unique discoveries in my path and then take them home to my studio. Here, I take my time to explore the objects and try to work out how I can show each one to it’s best advantage. My finds inspire me. While looking at them I can invent my own stories about their existence and their lives. By protecting these precious pieces under glass, I give the objects a second life and hope to inspire people to make up their own stories about them.”

Aquest estiu la meva germana em va regalar unes arracades d’aquesta noia, i són fantàstiques. Transfereix dibuixos d’ales de papallones a la seda i llavors les munta com a joies, la delicadesa i suavitat amb la que es mouen les seves peces fa que sembli que portes papallones de veritat penjant de les orelles. Podeu trobar les seves joies a la venta a Etsy i al seu Flickr.

This summer my sister present me one earrings of this girl, and they’re amazing. She transfer butterfly wings drawings to silk and then set them as jewels, the softness with which they move make them look real butterflies hanging from the ears. You can find her jewelry for sale at Etsy and her Flickr.
