Sunset Cycles brooch from Cycles of Nature symbolizes the perfect stage created by nature. There is a source, a connection and motivation. It doesn’t matter which time or place. It’s only one thing and multiple possibilities. I choose work in, and for art, creating jewellery, to make my inner world visible. Colours and forms of biological organisms transformed in my mind. A piece of jewellery is like your avatar. It may be your personification of your character and your thoughts, it represents you when you wear it. It is lasting connection. A creative intention, a frame of the world view. Unfolding senses in the heart of things is to learn about the things. Why did nature give such a seductive mask its own Creation, but in our eyes it’s not like in its inner side? Why do butterflies and other insects perform in the body of unsightly larvae the magic of metamorphosis? Sunset Cycles brooch consists of three driftwood pieces that are dyed and lacquered. Connected they create a triangle with the meaning of harmony and light.
For me, to create jewellery, is to make the inner world visible.
A shape of a circle, found everywhere in nature, locked in our subconscious. Twisted and organic shapes are inspired by marine life forms like medusa and sea anemones. The opulence of color combinations, stories and myths, paired with material characteristic, result in fantasy creations which approach real sea animals in different ways. 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 softness or its temperature. I try to involve as many senses as possible to create a vivid and strong jewellery piece. I’ve abstracted the body into a construction and deconstruction of materials, and gave it a new form powered by colours.
