Atelier TED NOTEN - Wanna swap your ring?

Almost everyone will grin when recognising the "burden" of what to do with the jewellery you've inherited, jewellery from a past marriage or, like most jewellery makers, many failed experiments that never made it to "masterpiece status".

ATN offers a solution through the project: 'WANNA SWAP YOUR RING?'

The shape of a gun, a Ted Noten icon, is constructed of 155 pink rings. As people swap these out for their own rings, the jewellery jungle begins to grow, full of the stories told, by the rings that people leave behind. Jewellery reflects the soul of a city!

Atelier Ted Noten will also present this project in cities all over the world (Sao Paulo, New York, Shanghai, Paris, Moscow). After visiting 15 cities the guns will all travel to one destination where they will be rebuilt exactly, this time, all in the same exhibition space.
