Banknote Jewellery

Cindy Ng

A graduate of London's Royal College of Art Tine De Ruysser, Ph.D spends her days investigating production methods and folding patterns with a metal and fabric, a new material she invented while she was a student.

"Banknote Jewellery" is a conceptual and even political piece articulating the relationship between paper money and gold. A timely piece during our world's financial crisis, Tine explores the symbolism and relationship between the value of paper money and gold.
