Gésine Hackenberg is a German artist and metal smith who thinks outside the box when it comes to creating unusual jewelry. She connects between ordinary objects and making something wearable. Her kitchen jewelry consists of punched out portions of pottery, lacquered bowls and plates strung together like beads to form necklaces, brooches or incorporated into rings.
Broken pieces of pottery are also given new beginnings - the ring portion of a tea cup has even been made into a ring spoon (below left)! The remnant of pottery still attached to the ring part becomes the scoop! Brilliant.
