Today's artist spotlight features Danish accessories designer, Jane Kønig. She produces high-quality statement accessories that are mere works of art. Her designs merge modern and edgy aesthetics. I styled a few of my favourite pieces from the designer's rose-gold ring collection for our style shoot. These are all pieces that I can actually wear everyday.
Sharp and sleek design lines give harmony to the juxtaposition of traditionally classic and fanciful elements in her accessories.
Kønig has been creating jewellery with her eponymous label for nearly thirty years. And, one might expect minimalism as an obvious flow in her designs, but it definitely has more than a striking effect than one might surmise.
There's dainty pieces like the diamond "simple earring stud" and "small ball ring," both of which can be worn for day or night, and exude unconventional elegance. But, there's also stately styles, such as the pearl diadem ring that's ideal for the bold accessories maven.
Kønig's signature is cleverly expressed throughout her line, and it's easy to see fanciful inspiration as well as an underlined Scandinavian influence in her work.
She uses precious stones like diamonds and sapphires, in addition to diverse metals amongst other elements to conjure the wide-range of offerings. The designs are motivated by everything from travelling to the variance in everyday objects.
The line as a whole can be viewed in the same way that fashion separates fit in your wardrobe; with the ability to wear each item alone or with multiple pieces layered together.
Another personal favourite is from the Magnetic Solo collection (launching soon), featuring eye catching magnet studded earrings (you don't even need pierced ears). The Magnetic Solo pieces have an industrial sophistication about them, and like the rest of her jewellery are still quite versatile.
Here's some of my other top selections from Kønig's accessories line.
