The works of Hanna Liljenberg are great examples of Jewelry As Art.

As “art”, jewelry is seen as a subset of sculpture or painting, and follows the prescribed rules of each.

The jewelry’s success is judged as if sitting on an easel or on a mannequin.   The body’s shape is mere pedestal or frame, supportive, but subordinate.

Wearability, drape, movement, context, and other functional concerns are secondary to the aesthetic.

Hanna’s pieces are indeed beautiful.   How well she reaches that line connecting jewelry to art, rather than distinguishing between the two — jewelry OR art — I’ll leave up to you.
