papieren sieraad Nel Linssen

My work arises intuitively and in an empirical way. I am continually trying to discover logical constructions, inspired by rhythms and structures in the botanical world.

In the development of my ideas the use of paper as a means of expressing myself was an obvious choice. As a material, it possesses a lot of qualities that come in useful to me. Moreover, the tactile qualities of paper are important in connection with wearable objects.
For years I used the best quality of paper for my jewellery. Unfortunately this paper is not available any more, so now I use paper with a plastic coating.

The cause for a new type of research is often quite coincidental. Struck by a certain form of material, I start a quest in which an interaction arises of thought and action in order to attain a useful concept. Finding the appropriate technical solutions is an important challenge in connection with this.
