6 New Technique bracelets (Walnut-, Maple- and Cherrywood, Cable ties, Dirk Marwig 2013)
*I made ‘fashion jewelry’ to sell in my 20′s when I was living in New York City(They sold At Barneys New York). Now I only make a few pieces here and there for the people I love. It’s also a way for me to try out new structural possibilities. This here is one example: I like simplicity and to combine things that normally wouldn’t ‘go’ together, like in this case combining hardwood with nylon cable ties to make something one can wear. These bracelets fit comfortably because they ‘give’ a little but are firmly held together by the cable ties. They are not glued. Using this new technique I will make much larger “things”. Can't say what-because then it will not be a surprise!-besides people like to copy my ideas and call them their own—unfortunately this happened to me many times before.
