Laura Bangert

Ironically, Laura Bangert, an award-winning 3D visual artist with two decades of experience under her belt, found herself making fine jewelry because she couldnt find anything to wear to the BAFTAs when she was nominated for her industrys most prestigious award. No one was making gold and everything was just stuck at the end of a chain ... I ended up borrowing my mother-in-laws 60s pendant luckily, she explains. Rather than moving into computer imaging and 3D modeling because frustrated by the limitations of traditional jewelry making, Bangert entered the industry from the opposite direction and began winning awards left, right and center. Bangert takes several stabs at describing her creative process but its about as straightforward as one of her rings! Maths is a huge part of what I do. You will see a lot of symmetry and arrays. Each piece of jewelry is a self-contained system with certain elements and rules that I will not abandon within a piece. For example, in the case of the diamond knot ring, I had eight lines and I had to finish with eight lines. On the other hand, when it comes to Bangerts creative process, spontaneity and reactivity are key: I will start with one process, then add another one, or deform it. My ideas come from everywhere. I may see a piece of string on the ground in a nice organic formation and use that as a starting point. Bangerts jewels, each one pregnant with kinetic energy, reflect this extraordinary collision between order and chaos. She sums it up best herself, You always think of maths as being really hard and geometric but Im adding a human touch.
