The serial aspect has always interested me, although the links, along with the rhythm and flow of the different pieces. The second aspect why necklaces fascinate me, is their special relationship to the body: as the body moves, the piece of jewellery changes constantly.

Statement

My favorite topic is necklaces and chains, because the serial aspect has always interested me, although the links, along with the rhythm and flow of the different pieces. The second aspect why necklaces fascinate me,  is their special relationship to the body: as the body moves, the piece of jewellery changes constantly - some of my necklaces are designed to emphazise this characteristic. And last but not least, a chain usually has no front and back (compared to a brooch for example), so the work is more "sculptural" and three-dimensional. Although my work is characterised by reduced and clear aesthetics. / Susanne Hammer
