Liesbet Bussche is a trained goldsmith and jewelry designer (Sint Lucas Antwerp and Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam) who took her studies in an unusual direction. Dotted around the world you can find her installation art which takes everyday objects and transforms them into giant pieces of street jewelry. The above installation can be found in Taipei, Taiwan. Below are found in Amsterdam.
Some of her latest work includes ‘Suzy’s Charms’, as part of the Mirror Mirror exhibition dedicated to the life of Parisian twenties night-life icon Suzy Solidor. The charms represent aspects of the larger-than-life woman and are found in Cagnes-sur-Mer, France.
Her subtle and witty work is intriguing and I’m looking forward to more of her ‘urban jewellery’ campaign.
