Name: Denise J. Reytan
Denise J. Reytan is a Berlin-based jewellery designer and artist with a great love for bright colours and fascinating materials. She’s been creating jewellery as well as installations and art objects for the past 12 years.
Reytan´s work is an exploration in contrasts –
between materials, values, colours and personal
content. She is questioning conventional
boundaries and is interested in the transformation of precious into non-precious and vice versa.
But the question is also one about the ideal and
intrinsic value of objects and their importance.
Reytan’s jewellery making is like material painting. She’s creating wearable collages in a very picturesque way by combining various materials in a wide range of shining colors: for instance, precious gemstones, textiles, silicone and her own casted plastic objects. Thereby, Reytan’s pieces become unique compositions that all have a story to tell. They become »poems on the body« made with a great love for detail and a special sense for the statement the pieces carry over. The T1MEPEACE bracelet looks like a watch, yet, it reminds you to enjoy life and to forget about time.
All jewellery is handmade and manufactured in Berlin.
