(Ted Noten and Clemence-Marie van Lieshout, this year ‘For Each a Bracelet’ was the 5th edition of an ongoing jewellery project by the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. Students of the Bachelor course at the Jewellery Design & Silversmithing department were asked to design bracelets for Paul Derrez and Willem Hoogstede. (Gallery RA Amsterdam)
The consideration to give this assignment was mainly motivated by the minimal offer of contemporary styled bracelets. As an additional difficulty Paul & Willem operated as a condition that both bracelets had to differ from each other but still had to look like a ‘couple’.
After an exciting and instructive glimpse into their private collection our students had to get started with their different approaches as result.
