'Spatial Structures'

"I am fascinated by level and spatial structures and their principles of arrangement. Discovering these and transforming them into jewellery is my artistic ambition. Associations with architecture and the microcosm of the plant world are visible in equal measure. Using just a few basic elements, I create room-filling, complex structures, whose charm lies in the balance between the simple, large form and the wealth of the detail in the small form - the finely chased ornament."
Silke Trekel, 2010
