Artist list

Carla Nuis
The exhibition consists of four large necklaces from her most important recent works that have been receiving international recognition along with a new series of sixty silver pendants. In creating jewelries, Nuis combines organic forms with mathematical abstractions, and traditional crafts with the most modern design technologies. “Objectifying Ornamental Patterns” as forms of jewelry has been her main theme through the recent years. Decorative patterns taken from 17-century’s classic textiles gain contemporary beauty and elegance by being transferred into open-worked precious metal jewelries.
