Mareike Kanafani’s Brutalist Concrete Jewelry

Mareike Kanafani's Concrete Jewelry

It’s not often that I write about jewelry though these chunky baubles by designer Mareike Kanafani certainly caught my eye. I’d describe her rings as brutalist, utilizing concrete in really fascinating, geological ways. They’re like miniatures versions of breakwaters, only more beautiful and complex. Her brooches (below) look like the precious gems you’d see on a chandelier. I love that she gives each a bit of tint and color which makes each one feel unique. It seems as though she hasn’t created anything new in a while, I certainly hope that changes soon.
