Hanne Behrens is a master of textile techniques in metal, who is known for the pure, clean lines of her designs. Using gold and silver wires, she deftly weaves, braids, knits and crochets her exquisitely crafted jewelry. She studied under Arline Fisch and Mary Lee Hu and is a master of textile techniques such as weaving, knitting and plaiting, with gold and silver wire. In 2000 she was commissioned to make a brooch as a gift to Queen Margrethe of Denmark on her 60th birthday. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including Bronze and Silver medals from the Best in Danish Craft and Design exhibition, and has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout Europe and the USA.

Statement

My work changes because of new techniques, inspiration and ideas. I tend to work best creating small series of related works, using the same technique but with different metal combinations, structures, shapes and surface treatments.
