Over 70 percent of our planet surface is covered by water.
And then there is Katharina Ludwig, who even makes water jewellery. Water is involved in a lot of her work indeed, but the series I love the most is probably the Ice Jewellery collection.
I like the unusual and poetic idea behind these temporary creations: more than jewellery they're "performing pieces". Earrings, necklaces, rings which live for one night, a few hours (but they come with a sort of mold so you can make a new one everytime you want), melting and gathering drops of water in a little cup or directly on your body.
From her website:
If water itself is worn as a jewel the preciousness of water is enhanced.
Put on the body it will melt by the body warmth.
What will stay is just the core of it and the marks the ice leave at your skin.
If you're not aquaphobic, these are for you...
Ice Ring: a ring with a stone out of ice. When the stone melts in contains some drops of water in a cup.
The Ice Necklace: a chain guided in a special way and frozen into ice cubes and shapes, melted the chain extends to its full size.
