Added blah on conceptual art….

I feel like there are a lot of jewelers that strive to make conceptual jewelry.…what the hell does that mean and what the hell does it look like? A lot of attempts at this often put the idea first but result with un-wearable jewelry because the idea is more important than the function. But then the work is only bought by a small specialized audience of art jewelry collector’s instead of a larger audience of people who want to wear the object.

Is it possible to make conceptual jewelry/metal objects if they are functional and sellable as jewelry objects??

I have to agree with Imin’s comment, ” I think the art I enjoy the most is where the conceptual and the material meet each other half way, where both the idea and the medium depend and need each other.”  

I thought I would post Ted Noten, as I a jeweler that I feel is an example of “the conceptual and the material meet each other half way”….I’m curious what anyone else thinks of his attempts….

Description of Ted Noten’s work by Candice Rafferty:

Ted Noten creates compelling, high-profile jewelry that strays from the beaten path of accessories design. The Amsterdam-based designer creates conceptual pieces including pill-shaped wedding rings that are swallowed rather than worn, brooches made from a cut-up Mercedes-Benz and animals cast in acrylic handbags. As his manifesto declares: “Jewelry must be shamelessly curious.”…..
