Nel Linssen

Genre: Objects, Jewellery

Nel Linssen takes an intuitive approach to her bracelets and necklaces made from paper; however, it is also an approach based on years of research and haptic knowledge. The relationship between wearer and viewer is the essence of Linssen’s jewellery, its articulation on the body enhancing and highlighting its colours and textures. While the wearer is aware of the sensuous nature and movement of the jewellery, the viewer is drawn to the constant visual changes to the work wrought by the slightest movement of the body.

Born: 1935

Place of Birth: Mook/Middelaar, Netherlands
