Artist list

Thea Tolsma
Thea Tolsma has based a collection of twelve necklaces on her research into signs that symbolise a meaningful concept, like shame, truth, disengagement and judgement. She sees a light, positive side and a dark, negative side to each of the concepts she re-interpreted. For this reason she cut the necklaces out of brass-lamella that was darkened by oxidation on one side. Onlookers won’t recognise the signs when they are being worn; the messages are a private affair. So is the mood: the wearer can choose the dark or the bright side, but the necklaces sit flowing playfully or angular around the neck, showing both sides of the material they’re made of.
