Hilde De Decker, 2018, Belgium


I scrape some golden leftovers, pearls, tar and polishing wire together to make new work. It’s enjoyable to notice again the real and timeless luxury of jewellery; which still lies in its expression of the dear and the personal, the precious and the vulnerable. But the disruptive appearance of these chains are a reflection of our time too; as fragmentation, demolition and restore has become part of our daily life – and work.
