Artist list

Niklas Link
The pieces of jewellery shown here are the results of two approaches that currently accompany me in my work:

On the one hand, of course, as a jewellery maker, I am fascinated by the examination of the human body - more precisely, I am fascinated by faces. Grimaces, facial expressions and gestures as well as feelings and moods are communicated without the need for words. This ability, which is inherent in every face, inspires me and motivates me to discover the various possibilities of expression. I let this diversity become jewellery in the series of icons.

The second approach plays with plastic articles that are available in mass production. Often no special attention is given to them. This is certainly due to the fact that there are millions of them. However, the formal language of these mostly small objects is already so mature that only a few - but well-considered - work steps are required to produce special unique pieces from the plastic articles.
