    A lot in little. Contemporary jewellery in Latvia.

    Forget felt brooches and woven wristbands — in Latvia, jewellery design is an active creative industry in which talented artists work with gold and silver, diamonds and pearls, nylon and silk. Mastery and an unconventional outlook have brought these authors recognition and wearer’s appreciation.

    Tanel Veenre. The Choreography of Jewelery

    Like from hidden underwater depths, from the deepest of rain forests, from places where no one has ever been before, from the phantasmagorical planet Pandora – that is what the natural shapes and colors created by Tanel Veenre are like. Kind of nature-made, kind of human-made... can anybody really differentiate and contrast the two?

    "crocheted membrane", 2008–09. Sonja Bäumel. This project is a visualisation of how we could use our unique bacteria population to create new clothes that would react to our individual body temperature. The texture would get less thick on areas where we need less warmth and would built up on cold body zones and create new body-related silhouettes.

    The magical transformation

    Interview with Sonja Bäumel on new forms of possible interaction between us – humans – and the environment: "We are all somehow connected through an invisible biological network present on our skin."

    BlankBlank overground streams

    The aesthetic of the new spring-summer 2015 collection "Streams of the overground" by BlankBlank is rooted in the unusual colours, lights and landforms of the untamed nature of Iceland. The landscape, created by under– and overground streams resonates deeply with the streams within ourselves.

    A trip into Felieke van der Leest’s world of contemporary jewelry

    The world of miniature animals created by Dutch contemporary jewelry designer Felieke van der Leest is interwoven with references to historical and romanticized images of the American West and adept parodies of Olympic athletes, and in this world of hers she cleverly inserts word games, allusions and appeals to modern-day social issues.
