Brooch, Piece 8, from How Long Is Now collection, 2014
Fleischhut creates evocative pieces of jewelry by combining precious materials with less valuable items. This brooch from Fleischhut’s How Long Is Now collection is made with common materials such as concrete, sponge, and foam. Fleischhut honors these materials with the same care and consideration she would bestow upon amethyst or topaz.
