Danny Ries - Contemporary Jewellery Designer
Danny Ries creates dramatic, unique jewellery in precious metal, combining traditional metalwork and hand knitting techniques with CAD.
This blurring of disciplines and skills is combined with an energy for technical problem-solving which allows her to explore the versatility and expressive qualities of metal wire.
Fluid and pliable, her bold statement pieces comprise a structured armature wrapped in a fine hand knitted skin which surrounds it in a decorative mesh to achieve lightness and volume. Each piece is designed to cocoon the wearer and give with their movements.
A Londoner with a background in art history and fashion knitwear, Danny is based at her north London studio and at the JeDeCo showroom at the OXO Tower.
