Bibi van der Velden
If you like simple strings of pearls or plain diamond rings, Bibi van der Velden’s jewellery won’t be for you. If you’re fond of the edgy and different, then take a very good look. She’s primarily a conceptual artist, and jewellery, or what she calls “wearable art”, is just one of the avenues she uses to explore new ideas. Her collections range from the weird and wonderful to the fantastical, and one of the most intriguing is Mammoth.
