Adorn - - DESIGN AWARDS - By ANKE VAN DER LIN­DEN (1st place in Stu­dent & Ap­pren­tice Cat­e­gory)

The in­spi­ra­tion for this three-di­men­sional and dou­ble coiled ring comes from the fa­mous spi­ral ear­rings by Agata Krzyzanowska and the spi­ral shape roof of Aude­mars Piguets head­quar­ters in Switzer­land.

Lin­den ex­plained, “The bold min­i­mal­ism and clean lines of mod­ern ar­chi­tec­ture, com­bined with cu­rios­ity and ex­per­i­men­ta­tion, aided the de­vel­op­ment and de­sign of my sculp­tural state­ment ring. My process be­gan by pierc­ing mul­ti­ple slits into a long, thin sheet of plat­inum metal and ma­nip­u­lat­ing it to cre­ate a coiled three-di­men­sional form. To add ex­tra di­men­sion and em­pha­sis, a smaller coil in an op­pos­ing di­rec­tion was placed in­side the larger coil. Com­bin­ing these multi-di­men­sional coils is an el­e­gant cross-over band. The state­ment ring when viewed from dif­fer­ent an­gles cre­ates an op­ti­cal il­lu­sion.”
