Wedding ring turns up in potato after twenty years - this was the starting point for Hilde De Decker’s project. Reality defies the imagination. The reverse may be true too. (...)
And then the jewels... First experimenting with my own souvenirs and other’s trinkets. Waiting for the results before testing with gold and silver. How does a vegetable react to precious metal? To being pierced, to gold leaf, silver trhread... Ultimately designing jewellery that grows into the vegetables. Or is it the other way round? Fitting the jewellery over the tender young fruit, not too early, not too late. Adjusting, intervening, leading, every week, or even every day. Creating new jewellery every week, following the rhythm of the vegetables.
