Technique


The necklaces of Shine a Light grow in an organic way. Arianne does not use fixed patterns or methods. A beautiful gemstone could be the starting point, but it might just as well be a painting, a certain mood, a piece of music or a special garment. From that initial inspiration Arianne sets to work. Intuition is an important part in the process, as she builds up the jewel piece by piece, until color scheme, materials, model and optimal suppleness together culminate in a coherent whole. That's why every piece of jewelry is unique and original, with it's very own character. A lot of Arianne's necklaces find their inspiration in nature and its different seasons. We can see that in the frequent use of natural materials as wood, shells, clay, coconut and especially gemstones, with their amazingly beautiful colors and forms.
