Post-Apocalyptic Baubles

I have completely fallen in love with jewelry designer, Amelie Riech's collection, Uncommon Matters. She hand-molds each gold, platinum, and white piece out of fine porcelain specifically found in the German region Thuringia, historically famous for its royal porcelain crafts. Riech's pieces are much more than just jewelry though, rather they are wearable art in the form of functional sculptures. Her art makes me think of a sort of post-apocalyptic princess in a mingled world where shapes are somehow both futuristic and ancient.
