Avicennia marina necklace is made of mangrove wood, the main material of the Ligno Regia collection. This wood is rich in biodiversity and act as habitats for wildlife. Inside of these two necklaces is a habitable environment for Naturally grown azurite ball and crayfish skeleton. It comes to a symbiotic growth in this salt plant. Mangrove environment is highly dynamic and harsh and mangrove species are variously adapted to cope with these environmental conditions. It is considered as a best form of coastal bioshield since it plays a critical role in reducing the impact of cyclonic storms, hurricanes and tsunami on human lives and properties.
Contrast and contradiction becomes sharper by using divergent materials side by side. For me it is important to feel the material, its smooth or rough surface, its natural form and colour. 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 symbiotic relationships symbolize the interpenetration and infusion of materials and forms. The bond is created by the adaptation and addiction of species. The symbiosis creates new patterns and symbols that grow from the inside to the surface.
The importance of the Avicennia marina necklace as protection lies in its position on the body between the chest and the head. The use of natural materials shows the devotion and connectivity of man to earth. His construct is a fragment of the world, regardless of the limits of the possible.
