Dutch jeweler, Gensine Hackenberg creates these simple yet clever ceramic jewelery pieces by literally punching circles from existing traditional chinaware. The concept and the pieces themselves are seemingly simple, but the juxtaposition of the old and the new is thoughtful and more than well executed.
It's all about seeing the origin of the material and the story that she's created for both the tableware and the jewelery pieces together that makes the concept more than ordinary. I love using existing objects and transforming it in whatever ways. It's part of appreciating the origin, story and character, and at the same time giving the object a whole new life and value.
