When life suddenly falters, new energy gets released. This experience inspired Gésine Hackenberg to making jewellery that explores the perception of repetitive circular movements. The Tumbling-brooches depict the dynamics of tumbling and spinning. Rims and rings of subtly tinted glass are arranged in spatial rhythms. The play of different hues seems to enhance the movement in time and space. The wearer becomes part of the delicate moment between falling and breaking or finding balance. The Drawing-necklaces and -brooches want to catch the dynamics of movement in three-dimensional drawings. A single black metal line becomes an expressive gesture. Sometimes it whirls with the energy of a pot on a potter’s wheel. When worn, the lines come to life. Falter not fall is consistent with Gésine’s aim to change the ordinary into something that can symbolise personal feelings.
