Untitled necklace (ref. no. 971) is one of many unique paper jewelry objects made by famous Dutch artist Nel Linssen. Originally intended as a wearable necklace, this work has been part of a private collection but has been kept by the collectors as an object of contemporary art. It is therefore in mint condition and comes in its original box from the artist’s studio.
Her paper jewelry objects are the outcome of a long and dedicated search to find the right paper and the right technique of cutting, folding, drilling and threading. Her objects are best known for the endlessly changing colours, caused by both change of perspective as well as manipulation of its shape. This particular object can of course still be worn, but like with its former owners, it can also happily sit as an object of art on side tables, small art shelves or even in treasure cabinets.
