Silvia Weidenbach deservedly won Best New Design at the Goldsmiths’ Fair with her innovative jewellery, setting precious stones in feather-light 3D printed nylon to create brooches. they are quite large yet weigh hardly anything. Holding one is quite strange as it weighs little more than a ball of cotton wool.
Granny’s Chips, below, plays with the idea of retrieving bits of old inherited stones to make something new and more relevant to today.
Watch a short film with more of her pieces here.
Many thanks to Silvia for the photos above by Silvain Deleu.
