The Full Circle Artist Program aims to keep our jewelry out of the landfill and to inspire art, creativity and dialogue around sustainability. Learn more about the Full Circle Artist Program here.
To reach this goal, we are collaborating with Canadian artist Danielle Krysa who will incorporate our jewels into a unique piece of art. This work of art will be auctioned online this fall with full proceeds being donated to our tree-planting partner Ecodrive.
Over the Easter long weekend, our Design Assistant Megan (who's an awesome artist in her own right) met with Danielle in Penticton to hand off the jewelry. While in town, Megz stopped by the Penticton Gallery to view Danielle's exhibition "Self-Preservation".
Since receiving the materials, Danielle has been quick to get to work. The intricate jewelry components have been disassembled and organized into groups. We're also beginning to see the artwork take shape, using the jewels to create gorgeous flower-shaped clusters (or as Danielle described - "bouquets built with broken bits"). And rumour has it that there may be more than one final art piece!
Please join us as we continue to document Danielle’s creative process and see recycled Lover’s Tempo pieces evolve into something entirely new! We’ll be sharing work in progress updates right here on our blog and over on Instagram too.
The Full Circle Artist Program is an all-encompassing collaboration - and we’d love for you to join us! You can help create a more sustainable future and in the process, contribute to a unique piece of art.
