The first edition of this rings took place in 2001, when I participated for the second time in the show/sale Rietveld naar de Beurs.
the idea is for the wearer to choose for himself what to put in the ring so it becomes individually different. On another level the ring has its own identity due to the fact that each ring is made individually so there are no two of a kind, although at first sight they may look all the same. Finally they are all made by hand and formed by me so every one and each of the rings has my own hand prints on it there fore my identity.
This rings have become very wanted so i keep on doing them. Soon the third edition will be available.
They can be also found in Amsterdam at , Otro Diseño www.otrodiseno.com and at Galerie Ra http://www.galerie-ra.nl
And in the Atelier/store of Nininha Guimaraes in Lisbon
One more year, one more "Rietveld naar de Beurs".
This is a project that happens every year in the Pentecostes (4 and 5 June). The Gerrit Rietveld Academie started together with the Beurs van Berlage, this tradition many years ago and every time it happens it is an enriching experience to participate. Congratulations to the organization and specially to Pieter Elbers that did a great job!
For myself it was as well a successful move, everybody was very enthusiastic about my product and it is always good to have a chance to talk about your work with a stranger. Thank you!
