Dear Anne,
Last night it happened again: the little pig appeared once more, this time all covered in dark chocolate, and for the first time, it spoke to me. It told me that every story can have different endings and that I should already know the difference between a gun and an ice cream. Then, slowly, it opened an old suitcase that it was in front of me and, suddenly, millions and millions of green shoes started to dance around us. I tried to defend myself, using my golden gloves, but it didn’t work. When I woke up, I had the impression that the dream wasn’t over. Something was moving in my hands and when I took a look, I found that a little iron pig was sitting on my ring, smiling to me. Do you think I am losing my mind?

Yes, Ted Noten’s creations are close to the world of the subconscious and no, you are not losing your mind. Ted’s creativity is present in his jewellery, his installations and his interior design projects. His latest adventure is called “Haunted by 36 Women” and is based on the archetypical perceptions of the Woman: the Femme Fatale, the Girl-next-door, the Suffragette, the Fashionista and so on.

As he explains, Noten has collected second hand accessories, construction material, jewels and cuddly toys to create an assemblage or portrait of each type of woman. By using the Rapid Prototyping technique, these assemblages are transmuted into scale models in every size and material possible, even as tiny as a ring. All details are visible in the object that is then built up from synthetic or precious metal powder, pressed into a ring or bracelet. This technique allows the jewellery maker to make rings suitable (and affordable!) for all clients. The last phase is a unique piece, cast in solid gold. We invite you to take a look at his amazing creations and who knows, you may have a little surprise while you sleep tonight!
