Iris Nieuwenburg writes about her work: “She creates Manipulated collages that capture a certain mood and time spirit.

Brooches as frozen moments.

The choice of elements, colours and composition play an important role by constructing and polishing the image,

At first glance you can read them from the nice and light side and enjoy “beauty”.

However, since they are storytellers they sometimes reveal a second layer; by playing with a metaphor she can also tell a more hidden subject in the same tale……”

Her narrative jewellery makes you think of a world lost in time, but the themes she is quoting are still very much up to date.

She uses vintage jewellery, small objects for example: parts from clock works, old picture frames, Victorian picture paper and Images of French 18th century interiors, combined with dollhouse cutlery, delicate silver candelabras, miniature china and soft coloured bouquets.”
