Rengin Guner - Jeweller Profile

Rengin Guner, an Australian Contemporary Jewellery Artist working at her jewellers bench, nect to a blue box with the logo of FIND Contemporary Jewellery Collective and text that says Jeweller Profile Rengin Guner

“Jewellery is my medium of telling a story, of expressing myself and working as ethically

and sustainably as I can”

Rengin Guner’s design philosophy remains faithful to simple pure geometric forms. She

believes in Dieter Ram's design principles. Less, but better – because it concentrates on the

essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials.

Back to purity, back to simplicity.

The materials used also make strong reference to her minimalist; architectural pieces. She

uses recycled silver, and ethically sourced gold for her designs. She is continually

questioning the making process and investigating how to solve mechanical

problems in jewellery making.

“I believe that the jewellery medium is a combination of art and engineering, I make

wearable art, and to achieve that you have to concentrate on the mechanisms, like how

to display that art on the body, so brooch backs, earring hooks, and bracelet clasps are

imperative parts of the design. The quality of the product is essential for me, only

well-executed objects can be beautiful. I try to create geometric poetry, a piece to be

passed down through generations".

Rengin loves introducing asymmetry in her designs. The idea of controlling balance in a

composition via irregularity and asymmetry is a central tenet of the Zen aesthetic. Try

looking for (or creating) beauty in balanced asymmetry. Nature itself is full of beauty and

harmonious relationships that are asymmetrical yet balanced. This is a dynamic beauty that

attracts and engages.

 Guner's work reflects a commitment to sustainability, as she utilises ethically sourced

materials and employs a slow fashion approach to her craft. Each piece is meticulously

handcrafted, with an acute attention to detail, resulting in timeless and enduring designs.

Through her jewellery, Guner invites the viewer to appreciate the beauty of simplicity and

embrace the notion of "less but better".
