Wiebke Pandikow has worked with plastic bags since 2014 and has developed a technique to turn used plastic bags into jewelry art with the help of a clothes iron and a soldering iron. This process happens by hand from start to finish, thus being very much grounded in the diligence and patience of traditional craftwork. The pieces shown are predominantly this year’s production.
