‘SAMPLE SERIES’ NECKLACE by VIJ5

A series of handmade jewelry, specially designed around the material NewspaperWood, focussing on the details and individual value of the material.

NewspaperWood is a new material invented by Mieke Meijer, developed together with the Dutch design label Vij5 and now produced and distributed by a new NewspaperWood company. It returns newspapers, which are made from wood, into wood again. When a NewspaperWood log is cut, the layers of paper appear like lines of a wood grain or the rings of a tree and therefore resemble the aesthetic of real wood.

rENs, the designers of the Sample Series jewelry, regards NewspaperWood as an archive made of characters, words, sentences and stories. The archiving, storage and filing of information is articulated in their design as well as in the NewspaperWood material itself. Stories from one newspaper, one day, processed into one material. Embedded in brass or stainless steel, a small part of the archive becomes wearable as jewellery. Taking a closer look, characters or sometimes even words appear!
