Goldsmith and jewellery designer Eva van Kempen has made beautiful jewellery from medical materials such as infusion tubes, hypodermic needles and blood tubes. In this way, she processed her hospital period, where life and death came close together.

For her latest collection, she used materials related to (anti)conception in combination with gemstones and gold. She made a chastity belt from pill strips, a rosary with a copper spiral and a neck jewel from glass syringes for IVF treatment.

In this way, she invites people to look at clinical materials in a different way and to see their beauty.
