Brockstedt on

Cornelia Brockstedt’s Morning Dew bracelet recalls the dew shimmering on spring moss. Her polymer clay and silver creation is part of a recent garden-themed series that includes City Garden, Shelter and Street Life and shows vegetation thriving unexpectedly in earrings and brooches.

Conny was trained as a goldsmith and has worked as a designer for years. Polymer allows her to combine her talents. “As much as I love black and white, I love all shades of green – and dots,” she says.

She likes to look at her subjects intensely and is fascinated by repeating forms. You begin to understand how her mind works as you flip through her Flickr photos and you will see why polymer fits her vision perfectly. Thanks to Donna Kato for the link.

                I have to add that I am ALMOST grateful for the fact that I can’t purchase her werk–I wouldn’t know how to choose. But Conny, set up a sale site and I’ll do my best!

                    Beautiful, it evokes me nature’s ability of regeneration. Its looks like young grass growing out of asphalt.

                      I like to see jewelry that represent nature.

                        Inspirational! I always wanted to make small sculptural shapes and have vegetation growing in them – maybe edible. I was going to sculpt them out of Hebel but polymer would be much easier. For my permaculture friends with city balconies!

                        Something disturbing about things growing out of jewellery. Makes you re-visit your assumptions. Kay
