Statement about Inger Margrethe Larsen’s work:

Inger Margrethe Larsen aims to challenge and break the boundaries for jewellery objects by utilize an extensive range of materials. Her means of expression are fundamentally defined by her ideas, and she always aims to bring an element of humor or edge into her work as a distinguishing characteristic. Furthermore she explores the unlimited ways of adorning and decorating the surroundings by making larger objects with jewellery elements, as Inger quotes »Jewellery does not exist as an isolated decoration but is a part of the overall form«

With her unique cocktail ring specially made for the exhibition FlourishRing Inger has created an oversized ring with a tactile surface which appeal to your senses.

For your information a cocktail ring is a large, dramatic ring often worn at cocktail parties and is an instant boost of bling. Yet another tale says that during the 1920’s Prohibition in the United States women often wore these rings at illegal cocktail parties, where they flaunted the fact that the wearer was drinking illegally, and was doing it with style. The Prohibition in the United States was a national ban on the sale, manufacture, and transportation of alcohol in place from 1920 to 1933.
