Contemporary jewellery as art, by Gie Luyten

Terhi Tolvanen

Or the battle between the artist and nature: and both they are changing

textile, wood, silver

Terhi Tovanen is connected with nature in a fascinating way and all her works seem natural too. Tolvanen is rebuilding nature on her own artistique way with new combinations of materials and forms.
