Mountains and always mountains; Knott’n, Brock’n, Stoan

Mountains and always mountains.

I grew up in the mountains, in the Dolomites.
I was surrounded by them, I have hiked all over them.
I walked on them, I got lost in them, slipped in and crept out.

Knott’n, Brock’n, Stoan.

My dialect knows many words for the stone the mountain is made of.
I cut wax and hollow it out. The jewellery is cast in silver. Unique pieces.
Just like my mountains are.
