JELKA QUINTELIER

Shoreline Necklace by Jelka Quintelier

Jelka started her jewellery career creating laser cut rubber jewellery under the brand ‘Black Lune’ many moons ago. However she now is solely focusing on working with precious metals and gemstones.

Her motto stays the same ‘Jewellery is more than just adornment’. Jewellery exists in conversation with the body, the most intimate of art forms. It lives with its wearer as a constant presence through the day, at a significant event, or even for a lifetime.

Inspired by treasure hunting and scavenging, manifested in London by going on regular mudlarking trips. Jelka creates one-of-a-kind, handmade sculptural jewellery pieces embellished with gemstones that are set as if they were randomly found like that. In between the cracks, askew, embedded in the metal, and some are almost hidden.

The designs are reminders of eroded historical treasures, naturally formed, as if they are accidental small landscapes.
