Guest Star #71...Denise Julia Reytan

I was very excited to find the work of Denise Julia Reytan (Berlin, Germany) while flitting around Twitter last week. I still haven't made it through the entirety of her dense website of jewelery, installations, and objects. Her jewelry is composed of layer upon layer of mixed-media and found objects like plastic toys, fragments of costume jewelry, and swatches of ribbon. Her dramatic use of color either in monochrome or polychrome shows an acute understanding and love of color and every piece is loaded with texture. One of my favorite non-jewelry sections found under Object is "Collagery," images of her personal collections and arrangements that are interesting to her. As a collector and arranger myself, I always find this sort of thing fascinating when I discover it in others.

from Collagery - "fascinating objects"

Thanks for reading.

Her work is just fantastic. I would love to own (at least) one of her pieces.

I love the new look, too. It feels fresh to me. Thank you!
