The necklace ‘Looking for Mr. Right' was nominated for the
New Traditional Jewellery Award 2010.
Theme: 'TRUE COLOURS'
Inspiration for the necklace ‘Looking for Mr. Right':
During my studies at the jewellery department of the Gerrit
Rietveld Academy I lived for half a year in Pforzheim. There I found a
postcard of women with hats topped with big red pompoms. Later I learned
that this ‘bollenhut’ is part of a costume worn in three villages
in the Black Forest.
My necklace was inspired by these balls hats. You can wear it at both sides: red on one side and black on the other side. By turning around this necklace you can easily show if you are free or not.
