About

Wild wire jewelry made by Lotta Losten's hands.

I find perfect circles completely uninteresting. There is nothing to see except even lines. Instead, natural or man-made forms found around us that take the shape of a circle - without being perfect - interest me. Round stones, circular holes in asphalt, footprints that leave patterns in square lawns are much more beautiful than an exact circle or square. My jewelry combines the unruly with the uniform. Within the form of a leaf there are fine veins, dry patches and holes made by caterpillars that when combined create intricate patterns within the leaf's uniform shape.

I find much of my inspiration in nature’s form and colour. My jewelry is never the same, it’s never quite symmetrical. Like undergrowth, it’s wild and intertwined.

My jewelry is often made from one single thread. This not only makes sure that there are no sharp points that you can catch yourself on, but also there is another thought behind the process. When I begin a piece I must know exactly how I can use the thread without having to turn back. I cannot “cheat” by skipping to another part of the piece. I must know exactly how much thread I need to make a cage or a pyramid. In my sculptural jewelry, it's even more apparent that the shapes are created by a single thread. This technique also makes the jewelry much stronger than if it were made of many shorter threads together. The form can support itself.


My Four Dimensions Pendant was featured in the March 2011 Etsy Fashion email “European Style”.

Thanks for the visit!

    I find perfect circles completely uninteresting. There is nothing to see except even lines. I strive to make jewelry that combines the unruly with the uniform. Wild, yet controlled. Like me.
