Wearing ceramic jewels: who can, who can’t

If delicacy is not among your strong points, maybe Judith Bloedjes’s new porcelain and silver collection is not the thing for you. Still, it remains a feast for the eyes

Porcelain jewelry by Judith Bloedjes feature an immediate industrial style which later discloses a soft, poetical touch

 A collection of ceramic accessories as the ultimate frontier of jewelry? After wearing all kinds of jewels, different both in shape and materials, maybe the new Haute Ceramics series will definitely amaze you.

This, in fact, is the most accredited definition to describe the delicate, hand-made jewels created by young Dutch designer Judith Bloedjes. ‘Poetic Ceramics’ could be an even better description since the most intrinsic meaning of these pure white objects, despite their rather industrial look, is that of conveying a profoundly poetic sense of aesthetics. 

 

The latter, of course, starting from the chosen material: fragile porcelain mingled with silver threads. The two materials, which feature remarkably different melting points, need to be assembled with great care – and with the same care they also should be worn. 

The making of the jewels starts with the turning process made by the Dutch designer on a raw piece of porcelain which is subsequently fused with silver to give shape to rings, brooches, necklaces and clips.   

Bloedjes’s jewelry collections, along with other creations such as different objects and installations, have been purchased by many renowned museums and are currently decorating famous royal palaces, actual representatives of the subtle yet profound connection between sheer beauty and high craftsmanship. The artist gives porcelain all the care this precious material actually deserves by creating multiple forms that result in a huge variety of unique specimens. At the moment the young visual artist is working on live performances featuring models wearing fresh porcelain jewels directly made on them.
