Iris Merkle

Iris Merkle compares creating jewelry to telling stories. “I make jewelry for people, and I am delighted when it is being worn.” In her jewelry, she also gives artistic expression to themes that she really cares about. She is currently working on the themes of parting and loss, of mourning and death, using relics that she finds in nature, which are then incinerated in the casting process. Cast in metal, they convey a sense of beauty and evanescence, radiating a charm that is all their own. When the individual elements, loosely arranged on a cord, touch each other, they produce delicate sounds and melodies. Thus these creations can either be worn as jewelry, or used as wind chimes that will develop a beautiful patina.
