The Terra Incognita collection was created when pandemic monopolized our headline news. The need for positivity and a brighter future has become more important than ever. Due to Covid-19 we had to stop. We had to pause our daily hurrying, everyday stress and our routine.
The Aeterna brooch symbolizes the new growth and positive energy withing our current world situation. New beginnings are born when something old is disappearing. A new chance to create a world based on love, help and understanding, living in harmony with nature and society. We can feel the contrast of chaos and harmony when something new is born. This happy feeling when new creatures emerge or are discovered in places we have never been to. Either it is the deep depth of the ocean or the infinity of our subconscious, an unknown place where everything is possible.
For me, to create jewellery, is to make the inner world visible. Colours and forms of biological organisms transformed in the mind and through the hands. Amidst the chaos, there is harmony. Millions of fascinating species, both animals and plants depend on each other. Some of them fall into oblivion. I want to protect and cherish the natural world. Nature itself defies expectations and comprehensibility.
The deeper the unknown, the more intoxicating the world. This is what the Aeterna brooch embodies.
