Beauty and jewelry – in a relationship?
These are not necessarily bound together although conventionally they have been. Jewelry offers an opportunity for communication and can be used to explore a full range of ideas. Beauty can be used as a strategy to draw attention to a piece of jewelry which may then lead one’s thoughts elsewhere.
Jewelry – Textile – Furniture – Installations – Performance. What’s your compass when navigating these territories?
For me, all these categories have distinct differences but they also have areas that overlap. I think any one territory that refers solely to its own history is maybe not as rich as one that looks beyond and integrates other inspirations and influences. Good work has a strong sense of purpose, a clear direction and a clear voice and a sense of quality.
