The Symbiosis of Beauty

The series of jewels deals with the cycles of nature and life – disintegration and demise that lead to a renewed growth. The jewels were inspired by the story of the phoenix, the mythological Egyptian creature that at the end of its life builds itself a nest out of cinnamon branches and sets itself on fire, from the ashes rises a new phoenix.

The jewels incorporate elements from the natural world and the human body and engage with images associated with death which still have some life in them. Thus for instance, the dry twigs gain new life through paint and composition, and the bones are awakened through their endless movement.

Materials: aluminum, silver, latex, cold enable, fishbone, dry plants.

Techniques: aluminum casting, abrasive blasting, dyeing, gluing, silver plating.
