War & Beauty

 

National Glass Centre and Design Event 09

16. Oct. 2009 – 3. January 2010

 

Medals & Bullet holes are two individual series of jewellery taking part in the exhibition War & Beauty. They both comment on the historical view of jewellery and its relationship and illustration of power, politics and conflict which result in thought provoking jewellery with an element of humour. Larsen asks “Does a medal cost a bullet hole?”

Medals for everyday heroes & heroines

Medals are a humorous series of jewellery made from pure white acrylic with coloured bands. They address everyday heroes and heroines, taking as their inspiration classical medals featuring a cross-, crown- or star shape. Larsen was inspired to design these medals while still a student, intrigued with the prestige typically associated with distinctions and insignias. Larsen’s medals can be used both as personal ornaments and for display in the home

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bullet Holes

Bullet holes are a series of jewellery made from silver with velvet colored decorations. Larsen was inspired to design these bullet holes while reading the headlines from a newspaper saying “London man killed in hail of bullets”. This was the kick off to imitate bullet holes in an abstract way by creating a bullet hole in precious metal decorated with colored flock as the blood coming from the shooting episode. Larsen’s bullet holes can be pinned on your tie, jacket collar or wherever you like to place your personal bullet hole.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

About the designer:

Inger Margrethe Larsen, Denmark

Inger Margrethe Larsen aims to challenge and break the boundaries for jewellery objects by utilize an extensive range of materials and techniques.

Her means of expression are fundamentally defined by her ideas, and she always aims to bring an element of humour into her work as a distinguishing characteristic. One example is a series of brooches entitling all who wear them to a medal, regardless of age and status.

 

She graduated in 2002 with a Master degree from the Royal College of Art in London, where she researched into the relationships between jewellery and clothing.
