Monika Jakubec

When balls and tubes come up in conversation, as they so frequently do, I think of that old Seinfeld joke about how commercials for medicines always reduce the human digestive system into a cartoon ball (stomach) and tube (throat/oesophagus). Munich's Monika Jakubec, unlike me, has an imagination that extends beyond the comedy stylings of 1996 and uses geometric forms like cones, balls, cylinders and tubes as the basis for some fantastic jewellery — like this piece from her Röhrchenringe (tube ring) collection.
