My work has been strongly influenced for some time now by the frail character our existence. I feel compelled to make work that lasts but am reassured in the knowledge that everything unavoidably breaks down in time.
So does the big empires, the long lasting territorial dominances. Many of which have been reconstructed in values and ideas with the help of jewellery. The fact that jewellery pieces have been used as a bearer of information for the people in power as well as a way to secure their assets for the not so fortunate, have made the work an important piece of information. In this series of necklaces I travel through time and space to see what areas and periods that have constructed my aesthetic value.
