City Glam With Liesbeth Bussche’s Urban Jewelry

  • Pin it

The Urban Jewelry project, signed by the young Belgian artist Liesbeth Bussche is rather intriguing and innovative.

Bringing jewelry pieces to a larger-than-life size and place them in various urban landscape situations is by far a pleasant and funny way to redecorate the concrete city. (the story continues right after the jump with more images!)

Part of her graduation project, this Urban Jewelry moment is ready to be admired in Belgium, on the streets of Tielrode (right next to the Netherlands border) as special announcement of a special exhibition: “What’s news”. The exhibition is, of course, about jewelry and various jewelry designers and it takes place until November 8, 2009 at the Sofie Lachaert galerie, Tielrode, Belgium. No word if the Urban Jewelry installation will still remain in position after the exhibition ends. Wouldn’t it be great if more artistic initiatives like this one would populate our concrete jungle?

Thank you Kpriss, never had heard of Tielrode before :) At first sight I thought: “Hey, a such a typical Dutch street”. Nope. At the border. This could be around my corner though….
That word “Huis” = house. :)
This is fun! Brilliant, street jewelry in the concrete jungle……
though a street like this really isn’t…..
