Intro
The jewellery you are now wearing, what material is it made of? Silver, wood, glass? Eggshell or 3D-printed algae by any chance? A jewellery maker needs materials, but boy, they are tricky! They hold beautiful stories but embarrassing ones too. On your workbench or around your finger, they throw dilemmas about the environment and social inequality in your face.

Klimt02's Material Stories series attempts to examine, in this occasion with six articles, various of these perspectives. Stay tuned to explore gold, gems, pearls, and recycled materials.

Saskia van Es, is an art historian. She writes texts on contemporary jewellery, such as exhibition reviews. Her fascination: jewellery materials. She was a board member of the Françoise van den Bosch Foundation.
