The driftwood I use in my jewellery piece Lucerna Viridi is for me an unknown species, found somewhere at the sea. It is extremely light, dry and hollow. Maybe it is fungal. I use vivid colours to bring out its beautiful wood structure. The colour and the transparent lacquer also stabilizes the soft material. In combinations with another material like silver, gold, turqouise and micro granules, I achieve the look of a new species. These have its origin in my imagination. To give birth to something new, something old must die. 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.
Crystal Odyssey … nothing is real, everything is fantasy – kaleidoscope skies with your head in the clouds… there is a place of diamond fields. Lonely hearts standing there – where are they coming from words are sea of green, gold and blue follow the man next door the sun will know all you need is everyone across the lane we live a life of ease return to the galaxy of souls where the crystal odyssey was written and coloured in memories.
Lucerna Viridi necklace is a one of a kind piece from the Crystal Odyssey collection.
