I created the Crosslandia brooch for the collection Orbis Regius in 2017. The connection between nature, colours and jewellery is for my work elemental. Flora and fauna inspired me, but also by minerals, structures and systems. I’m interested in unknown details of our physical world and the connection to the unknown parts of our psyche and consciousness. Although we know a lot about our life, there is still much more to learn. For instance, there is a number of animals and living species we still don’t know.
Like a figment of my imagination. Reality as lifestyle is too confining, it is a collective feeling. Doors to the other worlds – Doors to other perception – Doors of fantasy and jewelry. An infinite metamorphosis of a butterfly and life. Unrestless energy changes its form, in one moment body to spirit, in another thought to word. Word turns to act, act turns to character. Materials’ metamorphose change the colour and composition. It takes a new shape and charisma. It represents a thought of an immortal energy. Organized creativity particles. Jewellery Based on nature Positive and Negative Neutral and Ordinary Movement. Move throughout the entire universe, unbarred, without caring for the atmospheric conditions. Floating through a medium Root cause of life Jewellery as artistic medium celebrates passionate love for all human assets and its freedom of expression. Jewellery embodies emotions, it materializes itself in its thoughts and symbolizes its stance. The growth, the symbiosis of the material and the idea, to show how true life is.
Crosslandia brooch is a one of a kind piece.
To give birth to something new, something old must die. The transformation of material begins already when a being is born. The transformation of a dried piece of wood, that has been a piece of something bigger, in a piece of art to wear. Before, it was a part of a big tree, now it’s a part of a human hand when worn. By focusing on the essentials we reach the blurred lines between natural and artificial. These relationships are the jewel in the composition of freedom and individual expression.
