This is a realm of action figures, alien symbioses, ancient relics and small contemplative gardens; all amalgamated into the forms of new jewellery objects.

Her precious jewels keep the memories of those underwater forms she has experienced alive, each section floating with the movement of the wearer.

Karin Findeis - GREENBOTTLE NECKLACE























You are bidding on a stunning piece of work by established and well respected jeweller Karin Findeis. Read on to find out why acquiring this piece would be a highly prized addition to your collection.

Title: Greenbottle, necklace 2010
Materials: Rubber, peridot, turquoise, silk. 15 x 15 x 25mm.
Dimensions: L.300mm

About the work:
This necklace was part of a collection using rubber. I like the texture and tactility of it as a material.

About Karin:
Karin Findeis is interested in the way jewellery, and other objects, link us as individuals with the rest of the world. The intimacy and portability of jewellery play an important role in this connection. Her ideas explore the philosophical presence of jewellery through addressing the notions of transience, perception, memory and collecting. Many of these ideas have their origins in her early studies in photography, and more recently a major source of interest has been the Enlightenment, where the acquisition of knowledge lay in the objects that were collected. Karin has been exhibiting in Australia and internationally since 1988. Alongside making she also teaches, curates and occasionally writes about jewellery.
Karin completed her doctorate at the University of Western Sydney in 2008, and has previously received a Master Visual Arts from Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney and has also studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam.
