Experimental Jewelry: HUNKII DORII

 I love experimental and unconventional jewelry! In this series I'm featuring jewelry artists who work with unconventional materials and techniques, and who see a ring or a pendant as a canvas to express their art and creativity.

When I first came across the work of Hungary based jewelry artist Dori, I couldn't help falling in love with her absolutely unique, colorful, happy polymer clay jewelry! Dori's work reflects her sunny, smiling, passionate personality and is a wonderful trip into fantasy worlds and a colorful world filled with her evident love for life!

Dori works under her own brand Hunkii Dorii, which stands for her cheerful and colorful philosophy. I'm in love with her stunning Story Statement Necklaces (each one tells a story and is a true "painting" handshaped from polymer clay!), her Egyptian-inspired necklaces and her amazing Art Deco inspired pieces. Dori has indeed taken polymer clay to a high form of Art.
Dori, who has always been creative and has always enjoyed dabbling in all sorts of crafts, tells us that "my current craze is jewelry-making with a dash of sewing on the side. I love colors and like to experiment with them as well as with texture, materials, shape, design and techniques. I make all the pieces entirely with my own two hands and by the sweat of my brow. As a rule I like to make life harder for myself by not repeating something I've once made, but sometimes I like to toy around with an idea and create variations on a theme." (yay, a kindred soul! ;)) She also lets us know that her work is "pretty eclectic, which should not be attributed to my lack of style and aesthetic sense, but to the fact that my hands (and free time) can barely keep up with my mind, as I always want to try to create something new. In fact, I'm convinced that I have been cursed - I can't walk past anything without thousands of ideas popping into my head. Inspiration comes from everywhere and beyond - if you've ever created anything, you know what I'm talking about..." (Dori, I love this!!!)
Can you believe all of this awesome jewelry is entirely created out of polymer clay??? Enjoy! :)

You can find Dori's unique jewelry in her Etsy shop Hunkii Dorii (make sure you check out her sold items too!), and you can get to know more about her work-in-progress and her colorful world in her blog.

Hallo Anna,

sehr schöne Ideen und viele schöne Farbenkombinationen. Die Kragenkette habe ich auch schon probiert ... ein wenig anders aus 2 Gliedern und sind auch wieder gerade beim Brennen - es wirkt immer außergewöhnlich :)

Lieber Gruß von Senna
