STEPHANIE HENSLE

Of Death and Beauty


At her 3-Month scholarship at "deutsches Technikmuseum“ Berlin, supported by the company C.Hafner Pforzheim, Stephanie Hensle dealt with the topic "animals“, but always dead, in the form of a fox fur, fishes on the hook or an entomological collection. Jewellery meets death – beauty and death.

Out of serial stamping forms for pendants, earrings or bracelets, which where manufactured in mass-production, Stephanie Hensle created new unique jewellery by assembling and combining them anew.
Serial mass production meets contemporary jewellery.


Fishscales, feathering and fur are composed out of partly needle etched metal blanks, which are delivered of their original specifications, being a pendant or earring. 3500 stamped blanks, 40 needle etched  metal sheets. Taskwork - "business as usual“ back then at the jewellery factories of Pforzheim.
