Modular magnetic system For many years now I have been using magnetic fasteners, which in my view are a practical and simple solution for my necklaces and bracelets. I have come to incorporate them into my pieces by working around them, changing their shapes or filling them with epoxy resin. The next step were magnetic brooches, which can simply be clipped to the clothes without having to pierce them with needles. The aim was to give these usually old-fashioned brooches a modern touch. By working with these magnets my ambition was to create jewellery whose shape could be changed easily, offering maximum freedom for trying out different styles. Applying the system to necklaces, bracelets or rings consequently went fairly easily. In the last years I have spend a lot of effort experimenting with magnetic systems and have created several modules of jewellery that are suited for common use.
