As is the case with many "creators", jewelry designer Evelien Sipkes finds her inspiration in nature. Not necessarily from its shapes and colors, but mainly by its structures. "It's amazing how mathematically composed these structures are - just think of sunflowers, corals, the marrow in bones - while they tend to look so organic. I never seem to be able to resist the temptation to steal from nature while constructing my jewelry." This collection consists of 3 series inspired by the colorful nature of Curaçao. The necklaces made of bones and wood, come directly from nature. The silk pieces have names like sun, moon, sea, rainy season and bougainvillea and are inspired on this island's nature. The underwater world was her source of inspiration for the pieces of zinc. The structure of corals, mathematic and organic at the same time, offered endless inspiration. By putting zinc in a bath of chemical liquids, it gets the aura of a long stay at the bottom of the ocean. Evelien Sipkes designes jewelry for the famous mezzo soprano Tania Kross.
