Christiane Diehl : rubber jewellery update
Christiane Diehl, a talented and creative designer of landscapes and jewellery, has developed an array of sumptuous works using the rubber inner tubes used for bicycle wheels and other rubber bands. You may recall a previous post on her work. The results are tactile and extremely appealing and have interested cycling enthusiasts, designers and appreciators of good jewellery and design from all around the world.
Well Christiane’s obsession with the material has continued since her move from Sydney to Hannover, Germanay.
Back in Germany I continued working with recycled materials, especially with inner bike tubes. I never thought this material had so much design substance. I can’t stop to touch it!
Here are some of the more recent deigns that have given the inner tube new ‘spin’.
There are many more designs to her creative reportior beyond the images I have chosen here so feel free to contact her through her website for more information.
