This series of beautiful, organic necklaces are actually made using pre-chewed chewing gum! Andersson states she ‘identified with the repeated persistent movement and the constant grinding.’ – hence the project title.
“To me jewellery is communication. The life of a piece starts with an idea or when experimenting with a material. When the finished piece meets an audience another process starts. My experiences are mixed with the thoughts and associations of others and the object develops. The intimate connection to a wearer and a body makes the relation to the recipient very special.” – http://www.karin-roy.se/
