The techniques Nicole Walger uses to create her jewelry leave clearly visible marks on each piece. So her rings, for example, look as if a specific moment of creation, i.e. of the crafting process, had been captured and frozen in time. This idea also inspires her to create particularly captivating wedding rings, such as the pair entitled Together, which has been crafted from one single piece of metal. While the beholder’s main focus will always be on the material – usually gold or silver –, the individual pieces’ forms and surfaces reveal the forces involved in the creative process.
