Gesine Hackenberg

Kleinoden means 'little treasures' in Dutch, which describes the work of Gesine Hackenberg perfectly. Her brooches remind me of the tiny tins a baker may use to cook up a mini-cake or bon-bon. As if that wasn't charming in and of itself, Gesine uses Japanese Urushi lacquer in her work, which gives each piece a distinct retro twist. (via the wonderful dutch blog grijs)
