Layer upon layer

Layering is the main feature in Frieda Lühl's new range of jewellery, called "Collage".

From the Series

Frieda Lühl Jewellery will be presenting the Collage collection at Design Indaba Expo.

Collage is all about layering. Lühl merges older and more recent work and reuses decorative pieces she did long time ago. It’s about using scrap material and combining it all with exciting new materials and techniques.

The main technique in combining the different layers is riveting. Apart from keeping all pieces together, these rivets also function as settings for tiny stones and pearls or are used as a link to connect a necklace.

Another technique Lühl employs is the use of thread on silver. In some of the new necklaces the Sisal band functioning as necklace is stitched onto the pendant.
