Clockwork Love builds further on the Bling Bling pendant designed by Tjep. for Chi Ha Paura...? Launched in 2002, it was constructed from several layers of overlapping logos.
Clockwork Love is a jewelry collection evenly and consistently combining a great multitude of graphic elements in a multitude of layers.
The main body of this collection presented in Gallery Ra in Amsterdam consists of 6 timepieces expressing different 'heart moods' through the liberal use of symbolic references, the collection of pendants link up to such themes as fragility, passion, uncertainty and desire.
The frozen mechanical arrangements express characters as if it were portraits immobilized in time. The pieces range in size from 8*8 cm (small), 16*16 cm (medium) all the way to 70*70 (Extra Large) as mural. Different cutting techniques and materials have been applied and mixed. Parallel to the main theme are the sub-themes: hate, piece and black bling.
