Still life

These three neckbands belong to the theme “Still Life”, one of many ongoing jewellery projects of my workshop. The “nature drawings”, accidentally found while cutting agates came into being millions of years ago when different minerals solidified from magma, …they “tell” history and become something new in a piece of jewellery. Stamps are also little “messengers of history”. A country depicts images that represent the country: portraits of honorary citizens or politicians, landscapes, animals and plants, architectures, cultural peculiarities…
Carrying a personal message, they carry through themselves information or images, i.e. “reproductions” into the world.
Nothing gets lost on this planet, …everything changes and transforms itself, an endless transformation, in which each single element is stamped [formed?] by history.
