Redefining small seed beads into handmade beed jewellery, symbolises traditional art or kitsch beadwork for many. But to make it into something contemporary has proven very succesful for Fragment by Ditte Gren.
Fragment was founded in 2012 by jewellery designer Ditte Gren after working for other designers for several years. The need to find her own expression and design was her drive.
Fragment combines ethnic element with Danish simplicity, using materials like small seed beads and combining them with silver and gold plated silver. Colors and geometric patterns is the inspiration and the jewellery have a very different look depending on the color and the metal used. From very feminine styles to the more edgy look.
Every piece is hand-woven bead by bead in her workshop.
