Flake Collection / The facets on these angular flakes reflect the light beautifully. The Flake Collection includes ear studs, pendants, necklaces, cufflinks, brooches, bracelets and rings. I work with Flakes in four different variations in size and form. I use them individually and assemble several of them for a more complex expression.
The Flake Collection got its name because it reminds me of crystallized flakes of ice, salt or some other mineral. It is designed as a level sheet with a few angular bends creating a faceted surface, that catches the light in an elegant way.
I had the idea of creating some faceted, yet not too massive, jewellery. I created the “first generation” of Flakes by hand, but afterwards four flake modules were drawn and 3D printed which gave a perfectly sharp result. The modules are different in form and size, so the collection has endless possibilities for combination and variation. A Flake module can be flipped and turned, it can be cut up and soldered – so the modern technique is supplemented by traditional craft in the finishing of each piece.
Flake is a popular collection: The small Flake pieces are easy to wear daily jewellery, whereas the larger Flake pieces are more of a statement piece, calling for attention.
