Collar and neckline posess the potential to influence our posture. Accessories give us the opportunity to self-expression, to assume different roles or to highlight certain parts of ourselves. The jewellery pieces by Birte Söllner play with the seriousness of collars and their dissolution through contrasts and exaggeration.Spic and span also means pressed and spruced up, leading Birte Söllner to the technique of folding. Steel and leather combine to create flexible strands. The rigorously repeated textile folds are interrupted and held together by bold metal connections. Each of her accessories defines a different area of the body.The boundaries between jewellery and clothing blur. (featured in “Elle Decor Italia” & “DAMn ° Magazine”)
