Nel Linssen’s paper-craft jewelry may look disarmingly simple, but the Dutch designer’s crisp collars and razor-edged bracelets are anything but child’s play. Inspired by botanical rhythms and structures, Linssen’s “logical constructions” are designed to respond to the wearer’s movements . Every precise cut and fold conspires to create tessellated pieces that are at once minimalist in aesthetic and texturally complex.

STATIC FLOW

Linssen has been engineering accessories from paper since 1986, and her mesmerizing oeuvre is the result of years of research and trial and error.

Linssen’s jewelry embraces a mathematical elegance born from modular and logical problem solving.

Handcrafted from neutral-hued papers, her jewelry embraces a mathematical elegance born from modular and logical problem solving. Don’t mistake it for something that is cold and immutable, however. Linssen’s work comes alive when it cleaves to its wearer, exhibiting shifts in color and contours that vary from person to person, moment to moment.

    Hi Alimix:

    As far as we can tell, the paper used by the artist/designer is not recycled, It is a special light weight material that is ideal for shaping and forming.

    Thanks for reading and commenting,
    Abigail

    Do you have any idea if these pieces are for sale anywhere or are they just part of an exhibition of the artist’s work?

    Dear ‘eleventhour’:

    I know that Nel Linssen is represented by Charon Kransen Arts: http://www.charonkransenarts.com/

    Perhaps her dealer can give you a sense of the pieces that are available for sale.

    Thanks for reading ~ Abigail
