Jewellery pieces connect their makers, wearers and onlookers. Paul Derrez regards the interaction of his jewellery with the onlooker of the utmost importance. He puts his designs to the test in bars, amongst ‘an innocent and uninformed audience’. Soon enough, whether, how and what the jewellery communicates becomes clear. His jewellery evokes conversation. A number of pieces are literally made out of links, symbolising the connection. They are robust in size and have bright colours, to radiate and celebrate life.
