Intro
Svenja John has been working with Makrolon, a polycarbonate of the highest quality since 1994. Imaginatively joining and interlacing small pieces painted in multifarious colors and fine-pigmented acrylic paint, to form highly original, semiotically multilayered jewelry.

Artist list

Svenja John
The debate on the benefits and dangers of plastics is part of everyday life today, just as our everyday lives are inconceivable without plastic. For the last 25 years, Berlin-based artist Svenja John has been creating jewelry made of Makrolon®, a polycarbonate of the highest quality. Transparency, malleability and lightness – these key properties of Makrolon® enable Svenja John to consistently realize her ideas: Her necklaces and bracelets possess a fascinating sculptural feel along with innumerable seemingly techy elements. She skillfully plays with extremely subtle color combinations and the result is that the polycarbonate assumes a far greater quality in her hands. Each item of jewelry has a magic of its own that swiftly entrances spectators and wearers alike.
