andrea borst: dancing glass jewels

Let’s start the week light and breezy with Andrea Borst’s colorful glass jewelry. I didn’t find much about the artist, but I can tell you that she creates each of the tiny glass elements at her torch, then weaves them in an open structure using steel cable wire.

Field of Flowers, six strands, glass, silver, steel cable

Orange Blossom ZigZag, two strands, glass, silver, steel cable

My guess is that the tiny glass shapes shift and move on the body, their dancing ways enhanced by the flexible cables that spring and bounce when touched.

Dragonflies In The Reeds, three strands, glass, silver, steel cable

Sealife, plants and abstract shapes make up much of Borst’s portfolio (and it is an extensive portfolio), but if you look in the archives you will see that the German artist shows a whimsical sense of humor with necklaces made up of kitchen gadgets, food, children’s toys and clothing. Bright. Colorful. Fun. Happy Monday. . .
