Earrings in silver with three freshwater pearls. For pierced ears. Saskia Diez draws the inspiration for her pieces from many different sources: People, pieces of clothing, materials or moods, from small everyday details. Sometimes it is even mistakes, minor inconsistencies that lead her to new ideas. Stimulated by such observations and associations she searches for the right materials and combines the ideas with the symbolic content, the use and the function of the materials until something new emerges from them. In so doing, Saskia Diez is less concerned with the mere value of the materials than with their authenticity. What she seeks to emphasize is a different sort of value explained by the beauty and feel/look of the material, irrespective of whether she uses wood, glass, precious stones or gold. Her designs are characterized by great elegance and distinguished restraint. At the same time they appear very feminine and sexy.
